Q: how do I pay?
A: you may deposit fees in the SATRA account at any Standard bank branch or online if you have the facilities (link to bank details)
Q: how long are these fees valid for?
A: these fees are payable in advance during each tax year-end cycle. The tax year ends on the last day of February each year. So, if you join in May for example, all the fees are payable, but the amounts paid in proportion to extra months will be deducted of the invoice for the next year.  
Q: What is the SATRA database?

A:

the database is the list of members who are entitled to participate in our various partnerships. This is a confidential list and SATRA will not pass the information on to any third party including other members and insurers. To enable us to negotiate effectively for all our members collectively, we encourage you to keep your information confidential as well.

Perhaps the most important fact about our national database is that it is verified. In other words, the entire database is audited for completeness and accuracy and is the only one of it's kind in South Africa.

Q: what information is required for the database?
A: to upload you to the database we need the following:
 
• 
A copy of your signed membership application form.
•  A copy of your business registration papers. These papers must reflect who the owners are.
•  A copy of the identity documents of each and every owner of the business.
Proof of your banking details from the bank with whom your business banks. This could be a cancelled cheque or a letter from your bank.
A copy of your VAT 103 form. This confirms whether you are registered for vat or not.
A copy of the vehicle license papers of each of the vehicles you use for your business.
A copy of the identity document and drivers license of each driver employed by you.
