Key TBCSA projects
What is TOMSA?
TOMSA is a private sector initiative set up to provide additional funding for marketing of destination SA by collecting the Tourism levy. As the appointed marketing agency for the country, South African Tourism makes use of these funds to profile the country as a preferred tourist destination, locally and internationally.
With additional funding from TOMSA, SA Tourisms marketing reach is expanding, thus opening doors for your business to new markets and increased arrivals.
Collection of the TOMSA levy is voluntary and the amount paid do not constitute a tax to the business as this is paid by the guest/visitor.
The TOMSA levy is currently 1% on each confirmed booking and this is paid to the TBCSA on a monthly basis. Audited financial results are available to TOMSA levy collectors.
Currently the levy is only collected in the Accommodation, Tour Operator and Car rental sectors. This will be expanded to other sectors in the future.
Tourism levies is a reality around the world and the SA Travel and Tourism Industry will have to accept that this will become part of the Industry in a major way in future.
By supporting TOMSA NOW we have an opportunity to implement a levy that is administered efficiently and the way the levy is used will be Travel and Tourism specific and effective.
TOMSA is proudly administered by the TBCSA as a flagship project and the TOMSA Board represents some of the most experienced leaders in the industry
