Potential registrations for foreign businesses

In order to be fully compliant, foreign businesses must register with various regulatory bodies:

  • Registering with the Department of Labour. Employing staff means a mandatory contribution to the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF).
  • Registering with the Cape Metropolitan Council or District Council. Businesses employing staff pay a gross revenue or salary related levy to the CMC.
  • The local authority, if dealing in fresh foodstuffs or health matters.
  • Applications for import duties, if the company is importing goods.
  • Registration as an exporter, where applicable.
