Once an employee exceeds income of R17 712 per month, they will not contribute more than R177.12.
Where employees’ salaries are above the set thresholds, currently this is R91 250, if you are younger than 65 years.
If you are 65 to below 75 years old, the tax threshold (i.e. the amount above which income tax becomes payable) is R141 250.

These payments must be made within seven (7) days after the end of the month.
Where an employer expects that the total salaries will be more than R500 000 over the next 12 months, that employer becomes liable to pay SDL.
