Organisations that are registered with the incorrect SETA or wish to transfer to a different SETA need to complete an Inter Seta Transfer Request form (IST-01). Once fully completed and authorized by the relevant person in the organisation, the IST-01 has to be sent to the relevant SETA. (PS: SDF may not authorize this request)

Please take note that the Inter Seta Transfer process takes approximately 4-6 months to finalize, depending on the approval of the transfer by the previous SETA.

To prevent future Inter Seta Transfer request due to incorrect registration with SARS, please ensure you complete the correct Seta details upon registration. This is also applicable if a company changes their registered/trading name.
