STATUTORY REGISTRATIONS

Statutory Registrations are a very important part of running your business legally, below is a list of registrations that need to be completed at each stage of your business cycle.  

  • Income Tax – All businesses need to register with the SARS for Income Tax. In the past this registration was done automatically when you registered your business with CIPC, however Government in their wisdom decided this made life too easy for SMME’s, therefore you now have to visit your nearest Revenue office and complete an IT77C whereupon they will register your business for income tax. Now it’s important to note that it’s not just your business entity that needs to be registered for income tax, ALL entrepreneurs also need to register for Income Tax as a provisional Tax Payer. So while you’re at the Revenue office, grab an IT77 form and register yourself as well J.

The moment you decide to employ staff, besides the headaches of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, you will need to complete the following registrations:

  • UIF (Unemployment Insurance Fund) – All business entities (this includes Sole Proprietors) who employ staff that work more than 21 hours per month are required to register with the Department of Labour as an Employer. Once you are registered you will need to submit a UI-19 form to the Department of Labour whereupon you will list your employees and what they earn.
  • Compensation Commissioner (Workman’s Compensation) – All business entities (this includes Sole Proprietors) who employ staff, as above, need to register with the Compensation Commissioner. Workman’s Compensation is essentially a form of insurance that covers you and your employees from any workplace accident. There was a mistaken belief that only construction or “trade” related businesses were required to register with the Compensation Commissioner, unfortunately, this is not the case!
  • PAYE (Pay as you Earn) –  All business entities (this includes Sole Proprietors) who employ staff that earn more than R67 111 per year are required to register for PAYE with the Receiver of Revenue.  
  • SDL (Skills Development Levy) – All business entities (this includes Sole Proprietors) with a payroll that exceeds R500 000 per annum are required to register for SDL. There is no separate form for this registration and if it is not done when you register for PAYE, you can ask SARS to activate it when you see that you will exceed the R500 000 per annum payroll threshold

The monthly income from your business is now growing, but instead of making you happy, it’s making you worry. The thing it’s making you worry about is……. VAT!

  • VAT (Value Added Tax) – Well no need to worry, unless your business is turning over more than R1 million per annum (R83 333.34 per month) there is no need to register. Business entities (this includes Sole Proprietors) can voluntarily register for VAT if their Turnover is below R1 million. I know, I hear you saying “Why!!”, but in some cases it is beneficial to do so.
