Skills Development

  • Skills Development is the training and development that the employer provides in the workplace.
  • The training is provided from an outside accredited provider which falls within the definition of Skills Development as well as in house training.
  • Cost of learnerships are to be equal to the benefits received from the Seta.
  • The duration of the training is within the 12 months and the cost of training can only be claimed once the training is completed.
  • In terms of the Skills Development Act all organisations in South Africa with a payroll exceeding R500 000 per annum must pay a 1% Skills Development Tax on their payroll.
  • Companies may only claim their SDL tax if they pay the SDL Tax and provide approved training to its employees either externally or internally.
  • Organisations not paying SDL Tax may not claim the grants but they may however offer learnership and claim learnership grants.
  • The claim procedure is called an annual training report and a workskills plan. This consists of two parts :
  • The Annual Training Report : This tells the SETA what training has taken place in the company in the previous 12 months and which employees received training
