COIDA Application for change of nature of the business

Government Gazette No 42113 NO 1387 was published to inform employers of the requirements for the change of subclass and nature of business activities.

A business is classified according to the nature of industry the employer is engaged on. To change the nature of business, the following is required:

  • An Affidavit with the following information:
    Detailed description of the nature of business activities.
    Duties of employees.
  • Any other information which will contribute to the appropriate classification of the business activities.
  • Documents required depending on the type of business:
  • Proof of registration certificate with Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) in respect of business entity, close corporation or company.
  • Letter of authority in respect of the trust.
  • Proof of registration certificate with the Department of Social Development in respect of Non-Profit Organizations
  • Certified copies of Director’s ID in respect of Companies
  • Certified Copies of ID of Members in respect of a Close Corporation
  • Certified copy of ID in respect of a Sole Owner
  • Proof of SARS registration
  • Proof of SARS Tax Clearance Certificate

Reasons for the change in nature of business can be due to the following:

The nature of a business changed (sometimes this happens gradually – over years) and the business is now classified in the wrong risk category. It could also be that the company was incorrectly classified from the beginning.

The change in business activities and re- classification of business entity will be effective from the date of receipt of request by the Compensation Fund.
