Qualifying staff members are paid a taxable allowance towards cellphone contract costs.
The amount of the allowance is based on the staff member's requirements and is calculated so that the after-tax amount covers the cost of UCT-related usage.
Staff members who occasionally use their personal cellphones for UCT business do not qualify for a cellphone allowance. In such cases, the staff member can claim for the value of the calls by submitting an itemised phone bill or a signed statement as to the nature of the prepaid airtime being used.
Those who receive a cellphone allowance do not qualify for these ad hoc reimbursements.
