Niche South African Remuneration Consulting Services

Remuneration Consultants South Africa provides market leading remuneration and employee benefit consulting services. Our competitive advantage is adding a layer of tax optimization to the solutions we deliver. This enables us to optimally structure your Total Rewards System from the ground up to be fully compliant, where tax is planned proactively and not a mere afterthought. Our clients include large South African employers, as well as some of the world’s leading multi-nationals with operations in Africa.

Package Structuring Tools

Similar to our Excel based tool, the web based application offers full flexibility to client processes, policies and procedures, with the added advantage of having a single aggregated datasource with real-time reporting and a streamlined, automated delivery mechanism. The Package Structuring Tool is a versatile application which may be used to roll out many remuneration processes such as annual salary reviews, employment offers and assisting employees to make informative decisions on the benefits offered by the company.

Job Evaluation & Design

Job evaluation lays the foundation for the move towards internal equity and assists with external benchmarking. Our team of reward specialists have extensive experience in most of the popular and widely used Job Evaluation Systems. We assist companies in designing their Job Profile lay-out to align with the specific Job Evaluation System that they use for evaluation purposes to reduce the time spent during job evaluation. We also conduct job evaluation exercises and facilitate Job Evaluation Committees as expert advisors.

Payroll Audits

Absolute payroll accuracy is imperative in any organisation to ensure compliance with relevant laws and regulations in South Africa. It is critical that management mitigate risks to ensure there are no tax exposures on their payroll(s). Our services extend to payroll reviews and audits to assist organisations in attaining complete compliance to tax laws. Our expertise incorporates employee benefits, employee communication on remuneration and reward and generally providing leading practises and innovation.

Tax and Cost-To-Company Training

We offer a tailor-made, interactive, hands-on practical and technical two-day tax workshop which extends to Payroll, Human Resource and Finance employees. The training will cover the basics of employees’ tax, personal tax computations and benefits. Our training starts with the assumption of a zero-knowledge base and takes delegates step-by-step through the basic calculations which build up to more complex computations.

Cost-to-Company Conversion

We conduct Cost-to-Company conversions and manage the entire conversion process. Our approach is fully compliant with King IV, tax law and provides a tax optimal and cost neutral position for the business whilst the employee is allowed to make personal retirement and benefit selections to align remuneration to personal financial requirements. Our team has the necessary expertise from employee communication strategy to dealing with changes in retirement and risk benefit funds.

Education Fees Savings Initiative

The ability for employees and business owners to pre-tax structure their children’s school and university fees, remain one of the few available, but seldom used tax planning opportunities. This is the only tax break allowed on private expenses and have been extended in the 2017/18 Budget Speech. The saving depends on the cost of school fees, tax brackets and number of children.

Additional Services


The workshop was very informative and interesting. The team exercised huge patience with some of us and the value-add was a bonus. The course provides good examples and lays a solid foundation to Tax and Cost to Company knowledge base.
