In October 2002, R4.7 million, the highest figure to date, was collected by the fund. The TOMSA levy is a tourism levy charged to users of tourism products, usually at a rate of 1% of the total charge. This means that the TOMSA levy collectors turned over in excess of R470 million in the month of October.



Previous collections for October were 1.9 million in 2000 and 2.5 million in 2001. Even if one takes into account normal inflationary increases, the collection for this October shows an increase of approximately 70% in total levies collected. This is indicative of more tourism businesses committing to the TOMSA fund, which supports SA Tourism’s international marketing effort as well as the phenomenal increase in tourism arrivals.



TBCSA Executive Director, Dr Tanya Abrahamse said All indications are that this trend will increase well into the new year, and it is anticipated that the industry will show growth even in the traditionally quieter winter months next year.



The Industry can be extremely proud of its achievements, and can now enjoy the fruits of this unique public-private partnership,
said Glenn van Heerden, Chair of the TOMSA board.
