1. An employer seeking recovery of a grant against the levy payment must meet the eligibility criteria for grant recovery as prescribed in sub-regulation (2)
2. A SETA may not pay any grant to an employer who is liable to pay skills development levy in terms of section 3(1) of the Skills Development Levies Act, unless the employer:
has registered with the Commissioner in terms of section 5 of the Skills Development Levies Act
has paid the levies directly to the Commissioner in the manner and within the period determined in section 6 of the Skills Development Levies Act
is up to date with the levy payments to the Commissioner at the time of approval and in respect of the period for which an application is made
has submitted a Workplace Skills Plan within the timeframes prescribed in regulation 6(2) of these regulations
