Just a reminder that Workplace Skills Plans and Annual Training Reports are due for submission by the end of April 2016.

If you recall, the grants were reduced to 20% last year and BUSA subsequently successfully challenged the legality of the new Regulations.

Following the Judgement that was handed down by the Labour Court in August last year, the Minister initially took steps to appeal against this Judgement. However, the appeal was never pursued and has accordingly now lapsed.

The implication is that the Labour Court Order can now be enforced which effectively means that, effective 1 April 2016, the mandatory grant that may be claimed is again 50% of the Skills levies paid and the sweeping mechanism which was introduced by the invalid Regulation 3(11) of the 2012 Regulations is no longer in effect.

The timeous submission of these annual reports not only enables organisations to secure grants but is also a critical requirement towards scoring points on the BEE Scorecard.
