I am employed by a company outside South Africa and receive my gross salary monthly on which I then need to pay PAYE. My question however relates to UIF. In this set up where the employer does not pay South African taxes, what needs to be done from my perspective in terms of UIF? Do I pay this myself? If so, what percentage - i.e : the 1% normal, or 2% total?

The company has a responsibility to register as an employer in SA and pay your PAYE and UIF even if they don't pay taxes locally.
