Skills Development – how to claim

Skills Development

If you are an organisation that is liable for and registered to pay a Skills Development Levy to SARS (where an employer expects that the total salaries will be more than R500 000 over the next 12 months, that employer becomes liable to pay SDL), you need to submit your Workplace Skills Plan (WSP) and Annual Training Report (ATR) to your specific SETA by 30th April yearly to qualify for money back in training grants.

These are the percentages that you can recover:

  • 15% of the levy your company pays when you appoint and register a skills development facilitator
  • 10% of the levy when you prepare, submit and get approval for a workplace skills plan for the appropriate SETA
  • 20% of the levy when you prepare an annual training report based on your approved workplace skills plan

You can claim the cost of training, facilitators, training venue costs, course fees and course material. There must be documentation to prove the above.
