Funding & Distribution

SDL Distribution

The Skills Development Levies Act provides for the collection of a Skills Development Levy of 1% of the total remuneration of all employees in companies with an annual wage bill of over R500 000. This levy is collected by the South African Revenue Services (SARS) and then paid over to the Department of Higher Education and Training. The Department then transfers 18% of the levies to the National Skills Fund. The South African Revenue Services (SARS) may keep 2% of the total payments received for administration costs and the balance of the 80% is disbursed to the SETAs.

The SETA may keep 10.5% of the total payments received for administration costs, but must transfer .5% to the QCTO for quality assurance functions.
20%must be transferred to employers as a Mandatory Grant, if the employer submits a WSP and ATR by the deadline, and provided that the WSP and ATR is approved by the SETA against defined quality standards.
The balance (49.5%) of the funds received (plus any surpluses from unclaimed Mandatory Grants or other sources) must be made available for Discretionary Grants, of which 80% must be paid for PIVOTAL programmes. 20% is available for Non-PIVOTAL programmes to implement the SETA SSP.

These Discretionary Grants are thus to be used to implement the SETA’s Sector Skills Plan (SSP) and the Annual Performance Plan (APP), which highlights the priority skills needs including scarce and critical skills of the sector.
