Important: RSA Low or Interest free Loan/Debt Fringe Benefit - Effective August 2020

Dear X3 HR and Payroll User, 

The repurchase rate (repo rate) has decreased from 3.75% to 3.50% on 24 July 2020. As from August 2020, the ‘low or interest free loan/debt’ fringe benefit should be calculated by using the new ‘official interest rate’.

The ‘official interest rate’ as defined in section 1 of the Income Tax Act:

= repo rate + 1%

= 3.50% + 1%

= 4.50%

 

Please update the official interest rate on Folder/Legislation values applicable from August 2020 in all relevant folders.

 

Version 9

Access: Payroll > Entry of values > Folder values > RSA Tax Info tab

Create a new “valid from’ date 08/01/20 by copying the latest values. The Folder value for the variable INT_RATE – Official interest rate should be changed to 4.50 effective 1 August 2020.

Version 12

 

Access: Payroll > Entry of values > Legislation values > Legislation ZAF > RSA Tax Info tab

Create a new “valid from’ date 08/01/20 by copying the latest values. The Legislation value for the variable INT_RATE – Official interest rate should be changed to 4.50 effective 1 August 2020.

Please note that a payroll plan patch will not be sent out with this change.
