President Jacob Zuma signed the Employment Tax Incentive Act on 18 December 2013.
The incentive is an initiative that will complement government’s measures (as listed in the Youth Employment Accord) to create jobs for young workers and those in special economic zones.
A recent poll conducted by SAIT revealed that there appears to be a lack of awareness of this incentive by employers and that some businesses have not yet updated their payroll systems to cater for the deduction to their PAYE bill - this deduction is available for the first time when submitting the EMP 201 on 7 February 2014 (just under 2 weeks from now).
This webinar covers the legal and operational issues of this Act that are most relevant to practitioners and their clients to ensure that they are geared to receive this benefit.
During this session, the legislation will be considered from a practical perspective with examples to gain an understanding of the impact of these on your clients.
