Yatsar’s geographical support and service area consist of the Moot and surrounding areas in Pretoria, South Africa. Many of our residences are unfortunately victims of substance abuse, mainly alcohol and drugs. We have successfully managed to change their perspective on life and allowed them to be re-entered mainstream society and in so doing be self-sufficient.
We, at Yatsar, are authorized to issue a Section A18 certificate for donations which entitles beneficiaries to tax exemption (Public Benefit Organization Reference Number 930009976). We are registered as Broad Based Economic Empowerment Level 4 contributor (BBEE). Only around 10’000 NPO’s have a PBO number, indicating that they have approved by the South African Revenue Services (SARS) as a PBO. A NPO is only exempted from income tax, donations tax, estate duty and other fiscal levies if it has been approved by SARS as a PBO; or as one of a small number of other categories of exempt institutions, e.g. recreational clubs, Chamber of Commerce, Trade Unions and Political Parties. Even fewer organisations (in addition to be registered NPO’s and approved PBO’s) are also exempt from charging Value Added Tax (VAT) on the services they render and entitled to claim VAT, which they pay on their supplies.
Currently, Yatsar has a turnover of approximately 250 people per year who are assisted to find the means and courage for self-sufficiency. Yatsar is one of the largest food distributors to needy people in the Metropolitan area of Tshwane and extends its distribution to approximately 5000 people on an on-going basis. Yatsar has a proven track record of dedicated service and care for the past 20 years. We will highly appreciate your generous help to us.
