The Employment Tax Incentive Act (ETIA) has been in force since 1 January 2014 but, other than for the SARS guides, there is very little practical material to learn from. The aim of this webinar is to provide a detailed and highly practical guide to claiming the incentive.

The webinar is built around a real-life ETI case study, and will detail the ETI process from start to finish. Additionally, the presenter will share what he has learnt from interactions with SARS LBC at Megawatt Park and SARS head office.
