Following the COVID-19 Lockdown across South Africa, regulatory announcements have indicated that some SETA deadlines for WSP/ATR Submissions are extended to 31 May 2020 – a month after the original annual submission date on 30 April. This extension applies across all SETAs, but not automatically – for many SETAs you will still need to apply for an extension of this deadline or risk missing the deadline and losing much-needed grants going forward.

We have compiled a list of all SETAs and their deadlines according to their latest communications and announcements, indicating whether you need to apply for a deadline extension or if it will be automatically applied:
