    Registration for Workmans Compensation Fund - Retrospective?

    Hi,

    I have a client that has requested that I register their close corporations for Workmans Compensation. There are 3 different entities and their scenarios are as follows:

    1) First entity has been trading since 2006. How does it work when you apply for Workmans Compensation only now? I gathered from the application form that registration works retrospectively. Do they want us to go back 8 years? What if the information needed (like number of employees, salaries) is not easily accessable (in storage)? The annual salary/wages amount can be obtained from the annual financial statements, but the number of employees employed is not that easy.

    2) Second entity has been trading since 2008. Same questions than for entity one above.

    3) Third entity started trading in 2011 and ceased trading in 2013. It will be pointless to apply for Workmans Compensation now, as there are no employees any longer. Should they still apply to be registered regardless?

    Kindly advise...

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi J7J,
    If it was my clients I would not back date a registration to WCC. I would simply register as of 1 March 2014 and leave the past in the past.
    You will be lucky to get your new registration this year.... I've been waiting for new registrations for some of my clients since August last year....
    If WCC are so behind just to register companies, then where will they ever find the manpower to control if an entity is registered/was registered/need to be and did pay what they were supposed to pay?
    always fear when Christel is near....

    Couldn't agree more - WCC must be the worst of all the departments we need to deal with!
