Staff members of our office recently attended a roadshow of the RMA.   The Rand Mutual Assurance covers all business’ in the Mine, Steel and Motor Union sectors.  The effect is that business’s that falls in this category no longer submits returns at the WCA.

The yearly returns, as well as the claims for injuries on duty must be done online on the RMA’s website, www.randmutual.co.za.  You can also contact them om 0860 222 132 or send an email to contactcentre@randmutual.co.za

Currently our personnel are busy identifying the clients that falls into this category.  All clients must then complete an power of attorney form, to give us permission to act as your agent and submit returns on your behalf.

All business’s that register with the RMA, will receive an new registration number.  All returns and payments must be submitted and paid on 31 March 2017.

All outstanding debt at the Workmen’s Compensation Fund, must still be paid.  You can contact our offices if you need assistance on the allocations and method of payment.

When RMA received the annual return and payment thereof, a letter of good standing will be issued.  The total employees are also listed on the letter of good standing, as it is some cases required when tenders are done.

Arrangement for deferred payments can be arranged with the RMA’s office.
