In terms of the Skills Development Levies Act:


all organisations in South Africa with a payroll in excess of R500,000 per annum must pay a 1% Skills Development Tax on their payroll.

You may claim back some of this Skills Development Tax if:
  • You have paid the SDL tax; and
  • You provide approved training (internal/external) to employees that is aligned with Pivotal skills
To support your claim you need to submit:
  • An annual training report which tells the SETA what training has taken place in your company in the last 12 months, and which employees received training
  • A workplace skills plan that advises the SETA of the training you will provide in the next 12 months, based on your operational requirements, the industry you operate
We will assist your company to:
  • Identify individuals that are interested in training
