What we do
How we serve the payroll fraternity

The Payroll Authors Group of South Africa was established in 1989 with the active support of SARS and is an ‘Association of Persons’ registered in terms of section 30B of the Income Tax Act, with a constitution approved by SARS.

Since its establishment 30 years ago, the PAGSA has represented the companies that develop, supply and support computerised payroll systems in South Africa, known as the “Payroll members” of the PAGSA.

In its role as payroll industry representative, the PAGSA’s mandate is to focus on employment-related legislation and regulation requirements, and to engage with the various statutory bodies (National Treasury, the Department of Employment and Labour, the Unemployment Insurance and Compensation Funds, SARS, etc.) to facilitate the impact of their legislation and requirements on payroll suppliers, employers, and tax practitioners.

The PAGSA plays a critical role by providing balanced and informed input to the statutory bodies to identify anomalies and blockages in current requirements as well as to help shape future requirements and is valued by these bodies as an essential non-partisan partner.

As a result of this role, the PAGSA is uniquely positioned to provide informed and up to date information on employment tax related legislation, administration requirements, practices, tax certificate requirements, electronic returns etc.

It follows that the PAGSA’s information services are of great value to its members, and in response to industry requests, we have recently opened a new class of membership to allow tax practitioners and employers from small to large, to join the group as an “Associate member”.
