What is a "Letter of Good Standing"
A "Letter of Good Standing" is essentially an official South African document that proves the Workman’s Compensation Fund (COID) will assist in paying for any work-related injuries or harm to employees because payments to the fund are up to date.
Why is a Letter of Good Standing required when applying for most Contracts and Tenders?
A Letter of Good Standing is basically a form of security to most clients as they want to make sure they’re not responsible for picking up the medical bill or life cover for anyone hired to work on their premises, in the case of work-related accidents or illnesses for their contractors.
