PAYE BRS for Employer Reconciliation version 17.0.2 was published

SARS has made a change to the PAYE BRS for Employer Reconciliation (August 2018 release). The new version was published on 10 July 2018.

The changes in the official document, noted under July 2018 of the section Revision History, amends the validation for Monthly Calculated ETI to make provision for the designated Special Economic Zones (SEZ). A list of the Special Economic Zones for ETI Purposes has been added as Appendix E in the BRS.

The SEZ’s under discussion are:

For employees who are employed by an employer in a fixed place of business within the special economic zones listed, and where the person renders services to that employer mainly within that SEZ, the age limit to determine if the employee qualifies for ETI, does not apply, which means employees of any age can qualify to generate the tax incentive for an employer.
