The recent tax law changes have brought about significant adjustments to employees’ tax and payroll.

Changes to the Employment Tax Incentive Act has resulted in additional administration for employers, and this affects the manner in which Employment Tax Incentive (ETI) will be refunded by SARS to employers who are not able to claim the full ETI amount during the six-month tax certificate cycle.

In January 2017 the Unemployment Insurance Amendments Act was promulgated which includes some very beneficial changes.

Further changes to tax certificates during August 2017 for mid-year submissions will cater for all of the legislation changes.

All of these amendments will be covered at the Employees & Payroll Withholding Seminar which will be held in April, including proposals from the 2017 budget that will affect us in the future.
