Net 1 UEPS Technologies unit to fight order to repay social security agency

Net 1 UEPS Technologies Inc. unit Cash Paymaster Services (Pty) Ltd. will battle a court order to repay 317 million South African rand, plus interest, to the South African Social Security Agency.

A court in South Africa ordered a review of the agreement between Cash Paymaster Services and the SASSA under which the company received 277 million South African rand related to the recovery of additional implementation costs that it incurred during the beneficiary re-registration process in fiscal years 2012 and 2013.

The order came as the South African Constitutional Court extended by six months an agreement between Cash Paymaster Services and SASSA on payment of social grants.

The agreement had been set to expire March 31.
