If you pay any form of remuneration to employees you are required by law to register for pay as you earn (PAYE).
You are then required to deduct, submit and pay the correct amount of PAYE over to the South African Revenue Services (SARS) every month. This needs to happen before the last working day before the 7th of every month.
Although we find ourselves during a time of uncertainty due to a global pandemic, this has changed many aspects of our lives especially our working environment and lifestyles. This has altered our daily routines, schedules and working hours. As many things have changed around us, we had to find new ways of adapting and creating a space for ourselves to remain productive whilst working in the comfort of our homes.
Keeping connected with your employees outside of the office isn't always easy but there's definitely a lot of tools that you can use to help you along the way, whether it be a video call through zoom or conversations through slack.
Now, many of these applications are free right now during this COVID-19 crisis, so you can definitely take advantage of those to keep in contact with the rest of your team but it's not just so much about keeping in contact, we need to add a little fun in our days.
