The VET Levy came into being, following the publication in the Government Gazette on the 27th of January 2014 of the final notice by the then Minister of Education, to impose the levy on eligible employers. Under this notice, all Namibian-registered employers with an annual payroll of N$ 1 000 000-00 (one-million), or more, are required to pay one percent of the value of their actual annual payrolls as a levy to the NTA’s National Training Fund, on a monthly basis. In turn, the NTA is to apply such funds towards upskilling and training Namibians in key national priority training and occupation areas.
