Date: Mar 6, 2024 - Mar 18, 2024

CPD hours: 3.5 Hours

Time: 09:00 - 12:30

Event Type: Webinar

Presenter: Rob Cooper
Presenter: Niel Nel

Join Payroll Expert Rob Cooper and ex-SARS PAYE specialist Niel Nel for the most important Payroll event in your calendar.

Rob Cooper and Niel Nel will discuss the impact of the final changes made by the 2023 Tax Amendment Bills, which are currently in Parliament for approval, on payroll offices and payroll systems.

In these webinars, we will update you on the progress and inform you about what you can expect from two long-running but crucial employment administration projects.

Topics of discussion include:

  • 'Two-pot' Retirement System:
    • 2023 Amendment Bills made significant changes to enable pre-retirement access to a portion of one’s retirement assets while preserving the remainder for retirement.
  • SARS Vision 2024 PAYE Reform:
    • Significant progress has been made, culminating in the very recent publication of the SARS Specification for Monthly Tax certificate submissions that will make important changes to the Personal Income Tax Administration.
  • Tax Law Changes:
    • Non-resident employer registration.
    • Tidying up of the retirement fund contribution deduction requirements.
    • Requirements for the August 2024 Interim Tax certificate submission and reconciliation.

On the labour law front, we will overview the important Amendment Bills for the Compensation Fund and Employment Equity and hopefully be able to update you on their implementation dates.

What will happen in the Future?

  • The budget of 2024 is expected to propose some interesting legislative changes that will be unpacked during these webinars.

As always with these down-to-earth presentations, questions are welcome, and you will be provided with the webinar slides and a comprehensive workbook for later reference purposes.

Join us to get up to date and to understand how these changes will affect your company.
