We know the saying that there are only 2 things in life that we can be sure of – death and taxes. There is another, and that is change!

In South Africa at the moment we are feeling the effect of change particularly. The poor economy and the weakening exchange rate impacts many of our businesses, and with the recent shifts in politics added, our staff feel the pressure of uncertain times ahead.

The 2015 Business Year is drawing to a close. In Payroll, we still have Leave and Bonus runs to do. Always a busy time.

We believe that the Retirement Reform section of the Tax Amendment Bill has been finalised and is due to go live on March 1, 2016. Details are as yet unclear. We will continue to monitor and give you feedback via our website.

On behalf of the Accsys team, I would like to thank you for your support over the past year, wish you happy and safe holidays, and look forward to seeing you in 2016.

At Accsys, we have been talking about two major events

  • Finalisation of the Telkom deal and a new structure within Business Connexion.
  • The Bcom Payroll degree.

Both are exciting new chapters in the Accsys story and ones that we are proud to share with you.

Our tradition of corporate level service with the personal touch is still our watchword, however, we are looking forward to new opportunities within the Telkom stable.

The degree is a world leader - I haven’t been able to find anything similar anywhere.
