Renew TV licence :

** A TV licence is renewable once every year.

** Organisations, including businesses, need a TV licence for each set in their possession.
** Households need only one licence for all TV sets in the house, provided that they all belong to the same owner.

** Renewal dates are spread over 12 months.
** The renewal month is determined by the first letter of your surname or, alternatively, by the month in which you bought your television set.

Cancel TV licence :
** When you have sold, disposed of or lost your television set(s) you are no longer required to have a TV licence.

** You must notify the SABC of your changed circumstances in writing on a pro forma affidavit which is available from your nearest SABC offices or by making the relevant statement at any Commissioner of Oath.

FAQ :
WHAT ARE THE ANNUAL LICENCE FEES?
R265.00 per annum for a domestic, business, dealer, lessor or mobile television licence, and R74.00 per annum for a concessionary TV licence.

HOW SHALL I KNOW WHEN TO RENEW MY TV LICENCE?
The SABC sends out renewal notices ±2 months in advance. However, non-receipt of such notice is not an excuse for failure to renew nor for late renewal.

WHAT DO I NEED WHEN RENEWING MY LICENCE?
On renewal, one needs to present one’s existing TV licence, a copy thereof, or a renewal notice.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I FAIL TO PAY MY TELEVISION LICENCE FEES?
Overdue accounts are handed over to the SABC’s lawyers for debt collection. If payments are late, an account incurs a penalty of 10% per month to a maximum of 100% per annum.

IS A TELEVISION LICENCE TRANSFERABLE FROM ONE LICENCE HOLDER TO ANOTHER?
No, EXCEPT between spouses or between “life partners” in a permanent relationship sharing the same residence, on the death of a husband/wife or partner.

MAY ONE USE SOMEONE ELSE’S TV LICENCE TO PURCHASE A TELEVISION SET?
NO – one needs one’s own licence, unless one is a family member of a licence holder.
