Skills Development

All organisations with a total annual payroll of more than R500 000 are required to pay a Skills Development Levy of 1% of their payroll to their Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA).

You can claim 50% of this levy back if you do the following:

  1. Register a Skills Development Facilitator with the relevant SETA.
  2. Submit a Workplace Skills Plan.
  3. Submit an Annual Training Report.

You also get significant tax incentives for running learnerships in your organisation- a tax rebate of up to R50,000 for each employee who completes a learnership.

PeopleWise can help you claim these payments and rebates by providing the following services:
