In order to get funding you need a PBO Certificate

Southern Africa Youth Business is a lead when it comes to delivering and offering PBO Services for businesses, non-profit organisations and individual businesses.

When you apply for funds to corporates and other donors they require you to have SARS Public Benefit Organisation Section 18A Certificate.

With this you can apply to any donor. When they decide to fund you they will require proof that you are registered as a Section 18A organisation.

We assist you with the registration and the submission on your behalf.

They will need you to send a Section 18A Certificate for the donation they give your non-profit organisation money or things. Whether they are giving you money or they are buying this for your non-profit organisation or company. At Southern Africa Youth Project we help newly registered non-profit companies and non-profit organisations to register for Section 18A Tax Exemption Certificate.

  • Companies which gives to the organisation will be tax deductible.
  • Companies will get a reduced tax from the tax man because they contributed to a charity organisation.
  • It means that the organisation whether registered with CIPC or DSD has been registered as a public benefit organisation.
  • The organisation registered as Public Benefit Organisation is there to service the community.
  • The organisation will be able to receive donations, gifts and contributions which will not be taxed.

What is the fee for registration?

  • SARS does not charge a fee to register as a public benefit organisation.
  • Neither Southern Africa Youth Business does not charge the registration fee.

How long does it take?

  • Our tax practitioners will do follow ups and also make appointments for the process to be faster.
Should I use the services
