SOUTH AFRICA Employer of Record: Don’t be caught out by SARS!  Simplify Your South African Compliance with Africa Deployments

Are you a foreign company currently operating in South Africa with no registration locally? The regulatory landscape in South Africa is evolving, and compliance with the South African Revenue Service (SARS) has become more critical than ever.  The current Income Tax Act 58 of 1962 (“ITA”) is aiming to amend the laws to bring non-resident companies employing South Africans into the South African employees’ tax net. 

What does this mean? If you are paying a South African working for you in South Africa and not paying Pay As You Earn (PAYE/employee contribution), Skills Development Levy (SDL/Employer contribution), and Unemployment Insurance Fund (UiF/Employer and Employee contributions)?  It means that the South African Revenue Services (SARS) will hold you, the non-resident company liable for all monies due with penalties and interest for non-compliance.  Don’t be caught out by SARS and allow Africa Deployments to assist you in becoming compliant before SARS does!

In this blog post, we’ll explore how Africa Deployments can be your trusted partner for navigating South African compliance requirements and ensuring a seamless employer of record (EOR) process.

South Africa’s Compliance Requirement:

Recent changes in South African regulations mandate that foreign companies not registered in the country must get registered to be fully compliant with SARS. This requirement is aimed at ensuring that all businesses operating in South Africa are tax-compliant and adhere to local employment laws. Navigating this complex process can be daunting, time-consuming, and costly for foreign companies.
