Donating to a PBO? Check SARS’ New Requirements (and PBOs Note Your New 31 May Deadline)  

Nothing is more important when running a successful business than pricing your products accurately. Most business leaders are already examining the maths, costs and business considerations behind pricing, but there is also an entirely separate consideration which needs to be taken into account - human psychology.

With so much of the population now working remotely as contractors or freelancers, the traditional employer/employee model is being scrutinised more closely than ever before. While considered a classic form of doing things, there is little doubt that the full-time employee still has much to offer a company, in the right circumstances.

Deciding when to use freelancers or hire full-time is a job that requires an entrepreneur to examine the exact needs of the company, the finances available and the long-term repercussions and training required for a specific position. Here is our quick guide on how to determine how each of the roles in your organisation should be filled.


With a valid tax certificate from a qualifying PBO, taxpayers - companies and individuals - can get a tax deduction for donations made.

New requirements for both valid tax certificates and PBOs have been implemented by SARS, the most recent being effective from 31 May 2024, affecting both PBOs and their donors.

Before donating to a PBO and relying on the tax break, be sure to first verify with us the eligibility of the PBO and tax certificate with the new requirements. For PBOs, our professional assistance in meeting the new requirements is recommended.
