Mandatory Grants are paid on a quarterly basis. Depending on when during the year the application is approved, an employer will receive between one (1) to four (4) mandatory grant payments. Mandatory Grant payments are calculated as 20% of the total amount of levies received from SARS from 01 April 2023 to 31 March 2024.

IMPORTANT: Payments Notification:
AgriSETA DOES NOT send any remittances, recons or breakdowns of payment to the Employer or SDF.
Currently the new finance system cannot be linked to Indicium since we are in the process of migrating the employer data to a new system. The functionalities of grant recons which was on the old finance system will only be active after all the data integration of both new and old systems is done. This means, we are unable to send out any grant payment letters until such time that we are fully integrated to the new system
How to calculate payments
The payments for Mandatory Grants that is paid to you on a quarterly basis, may be reconciled with the total amount on your EMPSA or the EMP 201 from SARS. You calculate the monthly 20% from the total SDL that reflects on your EMP 201 from SARS, and count the number of months you have contributed prior to the payment to get your amount. The most accurate calculation will be for the entire financial year after all levies have been received and paid out.
