Organisations are able to claim back a maximum of 20% of their SDL levies through Mandatory Grants and 45.9% through Discretionary Grants by submitting their SDL reports to the relevant SETA by 30 June 2013 (no late submissions are allowed).idea-men-img copy

According to the Skills Development Act 97 of 1998 and Skills Development Levies Act 9 of 1999, organisations with an annual payroll of R500 000 or more should be registered for SDL and submit a skills plan to the SETA each year. These employers have to pay 1% of their workers’ pay to the skills development levy. The money goes to Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs) and the Skills Development Fund to pay for training.

The Skills Development Act aims to develop the skills of the South African workforce and improve the quality of life of workers and their prospects of work, whereas the Skills Development Levies Act regulates a compulsory levy scheme to fund education and training in businesses within various sectors in South Africa.It aims to expand the knowledge and competencies of the labour force and in so doing increase the supply of skilled labour in South Africa, providing for greater productivity and employability.
