COVID-19: South Africa - Extension of TERS benefit to 15 September 2020

Dear Clients 

On Friday the 04th of September 2020 the Director General, Mr Thobile Lamati announced that the Temporary Employer / Employee scheme (TERS) would further be extended from 15 August 2020 until 15 September 2020.  Take note that the directive extending the benifit has not yet been published and we will advise you of this as soon as we receive it.  

The categories of employees that will claim is the same as those specified in the earlier directive extending the benefit until 15 August 2020. 

Therefore in the event that employers have not yet been permitted to commence operations (either partially or in full) (such as gyms or restaurants), employers who have implemented special measures in respect of vulnerable employees, or for those who are working from home and employees who are unable to render a service either fully or partially because of operational requirements (in particular the need to limit the number of employees in the workplace through, rostering, staggering working hours, shift systems and short time / reduced working time) will be allowed to claim. 

Please therefore contact us in the event that you have any further TERS claims for our offices to assist you with the claiming process.  For any further information on this topic please contact Tanya Barnard / Lauren Parker on 082 328 7101 / 011 609 2630 ( //
