UIF With SARS VS Department of Labour
If any of your employees earn above R6209 per month you need to register your business for UIF with SARS and not The Department of Labour as PAYE is applicable.
Who Receives the UIF number?
How Does Penalties and Arrears Work?
To avoid penalties you need to ensure that you register your business and your employees as soon as they start working for you.
Please note that if you are in arrears, by law you cannot deduct any UIF owing from your employee. You the employer will be liable for both your employees and your UIF contributions for the arrear period as well as any penalty and interest owed. You can only deduct the 1% from your employee from the current month going forward should you not have been making deductions as yet.
Arrears is calculated as follows: they will calculate the 2% UIF owed per month for the period owing, a 10% penalty fee will be charged on the UIF amount owed and there is also interest charged, which is calculated daily by the finance department of the UIF, as there are fluctuations.
