Employment Tax Incentive ETI

Why is there an Employment Tax Incentive?

Millions of young South Africans are currently unable to participate in economic activity, and as a result suffer disproportionately from unemployment, discouragement and economic marginalisation. High youth unemployment means young people are not gaining the skills or experience needed to drive the economy forward. This lack of skills can have long-term adverse effects on the economy.

In South Africa the current lack of skills and experience as well as perceptions regarding the restrictiveness of labour regulations make some prospective employers reluctant to hire the youth.

As a South African employer you now have a great opportunity to boost the employment of young work seekers.

What is it?

The Employment Tax Incentive (ETI) is an incentive mainly aimed at encouraging employers to hire young and less experienced work seekers. It will reduce the cost to employers of hiring young people through a cost-sharing mechanism with government.

This incentive will complement existing government programmes with similar objectives.

ETI was implemented with effect from 1 January 2014. 

Who qualifies?

Top tip: There is no limit to the number of qualifying employees that an employer can hire.

How does it work?

Employer will calculate and claim the incentive on a monthly basis. The employer must follow these steps:

In determining the first or the second 12-month period, only the months in which the employee was a qualifying employee are taken into account. For example, the employee may be a qualifying employee in the first three months but not a qualifying employee in the fourth and the fifth months. If the employee is a qualifying employee in the sixth month, the sixth month is month number four as far as the 12-month period is concerned.

Top tip: For the next biannual reconciliation submission process in 2014, the EMP501 and IRP5 will also be updated with the necessary fields.

How long will it be available?

The incentive is extended to February 2019 but its effectiveness will be reviewed to determine whether to continue with the incentive.
