COID Return of Earnings (ROE) Form revised

A revised return of earnings form (W.As.8) for the year of assessment 01 March 2017 to 28 February 2018 in terms of the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act has been drawn up and published on 27 March 2018 in Government Gazette notice no. 41529.

The previous form and rules have been repealed with immediate effect.

As per the new W.As.8 form, the prescribed maximum earnings amount applicable to Provisional Earnings has been increased from R403 500 per annum to R430 944.

Because of continuously rising costs, the minimum assessment amount has been increased from R1 080 per annum to R1 153 per annum.

Employers are still encouraged to file the return online on the website of the Department of Labour.
