Human Resource Development Fund (HRDF)

The Human Resource Development Fund (HRDF) is a training fund that has been established for skills development in the country.  It is operated through a levy grant system in which companies pay a training levy into the Fund.  The levy payers (employers) train their citizen employees and are reimbursed for costs they incurred for training.

The governing policies are; the Levy Order which prescribes the training levy rates and the Reimbursement Regulations sets out the reimbursement criteria.  The training levy is based on a levy payer’s turnover which is collected by the Botswana Unified Revenue Service (BURS) through the Value Added Tax System.
