To all concerned:
VAT increase from 14% to 15% from 1 April 2018
1. Applications processed in the first two weeks of April 2018:
When applications are received and processed in the first two weeks of April, ECSA will normally still raise the old year’s application fee if the pre-payment of the application fee was received on or before 31 March. Applications that are received or processed after the first two weeks of April will be charged the new financial year’s fee.
Due to the VAT increase, applicants who are planning to pay for their application on or before 31 March and whose applications are only received and processed in the first two weeks of April, will have to adjust their payment amount.
Application fee of R700.00 changes to R706.14
Application fee of R1, 750.00 changes to R1, 765.35
Application fee of R3, 500.00 changes to R3, 530.71
Application fee of R6, 990.00 changes to R7, 051.32
2. Reinstatements or re-registrations on 1 April 2018 or later:
If a person’s registration was cancelled on or before 31 March 2018 whilst still owing an amount to ECSA, that amount owed needs to be repaid when reinstatement or re-registration is requested on 1 April or later. The amount owing will change, because the new invoice will now attract VAT at 15%.
A person who owed ECSA R3,072.00 at time of cancellation will now need to pay R3,098.95 plus any other fee applicable in order to be reinstated or re-registered.
