Do you know exactly how to apply for PAYE, SDL or UIF? Find out here

by , 22 September 2015
If one of your employees is liable for normal tax and there are reasonable grounds for believing that the total leviable amount paid or payable by you to all your employees during the 12 month period will be over R500 000, then you'll have to register for Employees' Tax (PAYE), the Skills Development Levy (SDL) and the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF).

Because of the newly-implemented single registration process, SARS has made it very easy when applying for PAYE, SDL or UIF.

Having said that, here is how to register for PAYE, SDL and UIF:

Online registration vs manual registration

If you don't have any access to eFiling, you can still apply manually by completing an EMP101 form which is available on the SARS website.

If you have access to eFiling and have at least one tax type registered, then you can apply for PAYE, SDL and UIF online. You will receive a registration number within minutes.
