Different levy rates apply to different tourism sectors. As mentioned, currently levy collection is concentrated in the Accommodation, Car Rental and Tour Operator sectors. The levies are charged as follows:
Accommodation: 1% of each confirmed booking
Car Rental: 1% of each confirmed booking
Tour Operators: R3,00 per customer, per tour booked
Conferencing: R3,00 per per delegate, per conference booked
Once you are set up with our TOMSA Administration office, you will collect and pay over funds collected on a monthly basis. Collected levies must be deposited into the following bank account:
BANK NAME : First National Bank
BRANCH NAME : Centurion
BRANCH CODE : 261 - 550
ACCOUNT NUMBER : 622-4314-7156
NOTE: All deposits must contain a deposit reference number - your TOMSA Account Number + reference to the month for which levies are paid.
Levy collectors are encouraged to make monthly deposits for all levies collected, as opposed to paying outstanding levies in bulk. In cases where collectors need to pay over levies that are outstanding for several months, it is essential to ensure that all deposits have a clear reference of the month for which the payment is made. This means individual deposits will be required for each month that payment is being made.
E.g. Lodge A has collected R100.00 in levies for the month of January 2010.
Therefore Lodge A will deposit R100.00 into the new TOMSA FNB account using their TOMSA account number and 01 (referring to the first month of the year) as reference.
E.g. Lodge B has collected R100.00 levies each for month of December, November and October 2009 but has not paid the levies over to TOMSA. Now in January, Lodge B wants to make a bulk payment to settle the outstanding debt for the three months - R300.00 in levies outstanding.
Therefore - Lodge B will make three different deposits into the new TOMSA bank account - R100 each for December, November and October. Each deposit slip will carry Lodge B's TOMSA account number plus a reference of the month for which payment is made - month 12, month 11 and month 10.
1. As per the TOMSA levy collection contract, all levies collected within a particular month, must be paid over to TOMSA within 15 days of the Collectors' accounting month end.
E.g. If Collector A's accounting month end is 31 January 2010; levies for January should be paid no later than the 15th of February.
2. Once TOMSA administrators receive the payment, a TAX INVOICE will be raised (on actual levies paid for the particular month), and sent via e mail to the levy collector.
3. For each month-end the, the levy collector will also receive a monthly statement of levies received.
To provide a clear breakdown of levies collected for the month, levy collectors have the option of downloading a remittance advice for completion and sending it back to the TOMSA Administration office.
If funds paid are for more than one month - Ensure you make separate payments for each month. Should this not be adhered to, the total amount paid will be allocated to the month in which payment was made.
Please ensure that you have submitted your Vat Registration number to TOMSA for invoicing purposes. In the event that the business is not registered for VAT, ensure that this information is communicated with the TOMSA administrators.
Upon receipt of your invoice, please check if the correct contact details are reflected. Should there be any changes, contact the TOMSA administration office.
