Here you will find documents necessary to operate as a student body at Wits.
Below is an explanation of the above documents:
EXTERNAL SPONSORS AND DONATIONS
Sponsorships or donations received from external companies must be transferred into the attached University Banking Details. Students are not permitted to have a private account
Should the Sponsor require an invoice first, this can be processed by your SDP or SRC Administrator and takes 48 hours to generate.
A filled in Customer Application Form must be filled in, in order to have the company’s invoicing details - IF THE SPONSOR HAS NEVER SPONSORED WITS BEFORE. If they have, then they already will be loaded on the system, and we will be able to invoice them accordingly.
Proof of payment must be forwarded to your SDP
The proof of payment is very important as the money gets deposited into the Wits Central account, and once your SDP receives the proof of payment, it is then transferred into the individual CSO Account.
