Tax Rebates

Learnership Tax Rebates and the benefit to companies explained in simple, easy to understand language.

In addition to claiming learnership grants from your SETA, you can also claim a tax incentive when you register a learnership agreement with your SETA.

Learnership tax incentive was introduced to:

  • Encourage skills development
  • Job creation
  • Providing an additional tax deduction for formal SETA registered training programmes

Types of deduction

Two types of deductions are available, namely:

  1. Annual allowance: to which the employer is entitled in any year of assessment in which a learner is a party to a registered learnership agreement.
  2. Completion allowance: during any year of assessment in which the learner successfully completes the learnership.
