Costing information for permanent staff in payclasses 1 - 12

For calculation purposes the following must be noted:

  1. Deemed pensionable amount (DPA) =
R0 to R150000 70%
R150001 to R250000 75%
R250001 to R400000 78%
R400001 + 80%

The percentage may vary between 50% and 100%. Staff may elect to change this percentage whenever their COE changes. If you do not wish to change your DPA percentage, the percentages reflected above will apply.

  1. Benefit amount (BA) = 70% of COE.
  2. Unallocated amount (UA) = cash portion of COE left after allocations have been made for compulsory and optional benefits.

Cost to fundholder

Total cost to the fund holder will include costs over and above the COE received by the staff member. These are:

UIF 1%
Skills development levy 1%
Maternity replacement and retrenchment costs levy for T2 and permanent soft-funded staff (paid from a research or non-GOB fund)
With effect from 1 January 2016 (previously 1%)
0.6%
(Note: Use COE to calculate these amounts but this will be slightly more than what is required)
  1. To calculate the acting allowance, take the staff member's payclass from the payclass of the post occupied in an acting capacity. Multiply this number by 5% of the staff member's COE. Divide by 12 to get the monthly amount, or divide the monthly rate by 21.67 to get the daily rate.
  2. To calculate overtime rates take the COE (annual) and multiply by 70% which = BA. Take the BA and divide by 12 and then by 21.67. This will give you the daily rate. To get the hourly rate divide by 7.5.
  3. To calculate standby payments for staff on COE take the COE (annual) and multiply by 70% which = BA. Take the BA and divide by 12 and then divide by 21.67. This will give you the daily rate. To get the hourly rate divide by 7.5 and multiply by 20%.

Please note that the formulae in points 1 and 2 above are included to assist fundholders with their budgets. There is no need to calculate the amount when completing the HR forms; simply include the number of hours and the system will calculate the amounts due.
