    TERS-UIF now online process

    Hi there,
    Did you see you can now apply online for the TERS-UIF process?

    Much better I think.

    https://uifecc.labour.gov.za/covid19/covid19Regsitration


    something I would like clarity on... if anyone can assist please - the benefits received from TERS- can we include these amounts when calculating the ETI on the new rules from April - July?

    Thanks.

    As I understand it, the TERS benefit is actually directly from UIF to the employee - the employer merely is a conduit in the processing of the payment.

    So the payment will not form part of the employer's payroll at all. Therefor no ETI claim on the TERS portion.

    What has me curious is if the employer makes a part payment to the employee (which will be declared to UIF of course), that now brings the employee into ETI benefit range...

    Has anyone had any success with that new site linked to above? I registered just fine (or so it seemed). However, when I try to log in, I get the following error message:

    NO DETAILS FOUND WITH YOUR DATA... PLEASE TRY AGAIN

    Hi Dave
    The username must be your UIF number, not the default that will appear.

    The state designed designed it, so be prepared......

    You might have better luck just emailing it. These people are as mad as a march hare.

    I have been using the company's UIF number...

    When you register you have to include the /. Whether I have the username with or without the /, it does not work.

    I'll try sticking to the email route then. What I was hoping for was an update MOA - the one I downloaded at the beginning of the month insist I open a separate bank account. I had wondered if that had changed for small companies since...

    I also note they have added a new field at the end of each employee entry - indicating whether the money should be paid directly into the employee's account (1), the company's account (2), payment to bargaining council (3). It makes sense, but the constant changes is as you say, Andromeda - madness.

    Hi there, You do not have to open a separate bank account. and the MOA don't apply for small companies with less than 10 employees, also do not apply for domestic employers who claim for their domestics.

    I also struggled with the online system yesterday, looks like the website is "over loaded" or something...

    But was ok later on in the day. I'm going to continue with the email process.

    Just do the one between UIF and company anyway, because they are more than likely to reject the application if you don't.

    I am assisting a few companies also that cannot produce their UIF number, although they have paid SARS the UIF contributions religiously. In one case since September 2010. Any thoughts on what to do about the UIF number?

    emailed applications are no longer accepted, only applications made via the totally oversubscribed website. Lovely.

    We are so screwed...

    Let's try again -

    Ouch!

    Went the email route yesterday... I suppose I had better go back to trying the website.
    Useless right now of course - tried it and it just times out.

    I'll try again in the middle of the night.

    You just have to be patient (not one of my strong points)...it is quick and easy... just make sure you have all the details as per the list i posted in the the other thread.
    Comments are based on opinion...not always facts....that's why people use an alias.
