Our broad range of flexible and adaptable equipment, and complete range of solutions, assist our customers in maximising profit and in return ensuring we are the partner of choice as they embark on the next” she comments.

Delivering on Sars Rebate Compliance Reporting

Through the company’s innovative telematics technology and the data generated, it is able to systematically and seamlessly generate South African Revenue Services- (SARS-) compliant fuel rebate reports for any selected tax period.  

“Our technology provides a full audit trail required for eligibility for SARS rebates, and our reporting platform simplifies the logbook and data gathering required, enabling successful rebate claims and return on investment,” Nathoo explains.

She adds that Gilbarco’s unique micro geo-zoning offering Accutrip+, and automated work allocation allow individual mining sites to be zoned according to mining activity. The telematics information generated by the devices fitted on the mine’s fleet can, through GPS tracking, calculate the amount of time each vehicle spent in each activity zone.

The solution’s aim is for full automation eliminating errors in transactional data and providing customers with verified electronic proof of records to support the Sars rebate claims.

In an era where regulatory compliance and environmental sustainability are paramount, Gilbarco’s solutions also stand as pillars of responsible mining.

By enabling precise control over fuel consumption, reducing waste and ensuring clean operations, Gilbarco supports mining companies not only to adhere to stringent environmental regulations but also to contribute positively to decreasing their carbon footprint.
