    @sylviahammond Good day, I would like to know; do the rebates still apply to foreigners or is it only for SA citizens? Thank you.

    • Hi Charity – not following you – which rebates? Please click on your name on the top right hand & from the drop down menu you can send me a private message.

    • Hi – if you are referring to Grants from SETAs for WSP and ATR , then the grants are only applicable to South Africans – no foreigners unfortunately. This also therefore follows with the Tax Rebates which are applied for learnerships and apprenticeships – only South Africans can complete these, so the Tax Rebate is for South Africans only.
      Hope this helps!

      • Dear Janelle, Thank you for the information. Is there any reason why and what would qualify them to be claimed under? Tnx

        • HI Charity

          The DHET and the Skill Dev Act states that the grants are for SA citizens only. The grants come from the 1% levy that companies pay as a skills levy so it is felt that this should be used for upskilling of SA citizens.

          I am not aware of any funding that is available for foreigners unfortunately!

    • Dear Charity. If you are referring to the SARS tax rebate for employers for learnership candidates, the SARS website is very helpful.
