Sage, the market leader in cloud payroll and accounting software, is hosting its Annual Payroll Tax Seminars in March to update business owners, payroll managers and accountants about the latest tax regulations and employment-related legislation.
With the sessions starting soon after Finance Minister Tito Mboweni announces his Budget, the seminar will help you to make the right decisions for your business based in the tax year to come.
Presented by Sage – South Africa’s leading payroll solutions provider, with over 9 million payslips printed using its software each month – the seminars will focus on the regulatory and legislative changes announced in the 2020/1 Budget.
The seminars will be led by industry expert Rob Cooper, a founding member and current chairman of the Payroll Authors Group of South Africa.
He is widely recognised as an expert in how tax legislation impacts companies’ payroll management functions.
“With finances at state-owned entities still in poor shape, the government is under pressure to make progress on initiatives such as National Health Insurance, and tax payers feeling the pinch in a tight economy, South Africans will be looking to the Budget for bold reforms,” said Cooper.
“These seminars will equip businesses with the insight they need to ensure compliance with new or amended laws and regulations so that they can be confident they are ready for the new tax year.”
Cooper will specifically look at:
- The Foreign Employment Income Exemption and Tax Credit that comes into effect from March 2020 will impact many more employers than expected and will have far-reaching consequences.
- New regulations have recently been published regarding Parental leave and its associated UIF benefit, and Rob will clear up a very confusing situation and advise you on the way forward.
- An update on other UIF changes that are in the pipeline.
- The Employment Equity Act is under amendment, and a final Equity Regulation has just been published that makes significant changes to your annual Equity reports.
- Amid political and financial turmoil, the 2020 Budget proposals that will impact on us in the near future will be unpacked.
Attendees will also take home a comprehensive yet practical workbook for later reference.
Seminars will take place across South Africa starting from 2 March 2020 to 9 April 2020.
