File Return of Earnings with Compensation Fund on your behalf


 1. What is a Return Of Earnings (ROE) form? 

An employer must submit declaration of annual earnings (salaries paid out during the year) to the Compensation Fund before 30 April each year. Based on this amount and the category your business has been registered with Compensation Fund an assesment will be raised and become payable immediately. 

2. How do I submit multiple ROE forms? 

If you need to submit more than one years ROE form , each return must be done and paid seperately changing the ROE year to submit on the online form.

3. How will I know what amount needs to be paid to Compensation Fund? 

We will send you the asessed amount together with payment details within 48 hours. 

Additional Info


How does this work?  

Step 1
- select the year for which outstanding Return of Earnings (ROE) form(s) needs to be submitted. Each year must be done seperately should more than one return be done.

Step 2 - complete the form as accurately as possible, read through the explanations of each section by clicking on the "Important Info" subheading. Contact us should you be unsure of anything.

Step 3 - submit the form and pay our service fee. This fee is payable to us for the service and is not an assessment fee from Compensation Fund.

Step 4 - We will send you an assessment amount with payment details to Compensation Fund  (based on the info completed on this return) within 48 working hours.

Once the assesment is paid in full you will be able to apply for a letter of good standing or send the proof of payment to us if you have already applied for a letter of good standing.

Very important:

Please take note of the maximum salary amount per year per employee/director/member that needs to be declared for each roe year (listed below). E.g. if a employee/director/member earned R500 000 per annum in 2011 year only R277 860 needs to be added to total earnings etc. If a employee/director/member earned less than these maximum fees the obviously the whole amount must be added to annual earnings

2017 R403 500 per person per annum (provisional)  

2016: R377 097 per person per annum

2015: R355 752 per person per annum

2014: R332 479 per person per annum 

2013: R312 480 per per person annum.

2012: R292 032 per person per annum.

ROE 2014: 1 March 2014 - 28 Feb 2015

Very important : ROE years differs from those of SARS, e.g the period 1 March 2011 - 29 Feb 2012 is the ROE 2011 and not 2012 as would be the case with SARS, therefore the year in which the Financial year begins and not in which year it ends

What do our clients say?

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your assistance in registering me as a tax payer.
I never thought it could be so easy. R320.00 well spend!
With all the new SARS laws coming into effect, I was terrified. I phoned SARS and they gave me a list of paper work and what they needed. I just knew that I couldn’t do this as I have no time and I didn’t understand them, but then I came across my finance.
You made it so easy and hassle free. Just a few documents and a signature and everything was sorted out and you kept me up to date on the progress with my application. I was so impressed to receive sms’s from you on the progress.
I am definitely going to make use of your services to file my tax returns from now on and I am going to tell all my friends, family, colleagues and customers about my finance on line.
Thank you so much for the way you handled everything with honesty, discreet and so professional.
Once again “ THANK YOU” !!!!
Kind Regards  
Bennie Nel
