** Valid ID (Driver’s Licence, Passport, Voter’s ID

** Company name
** Select your company’s name from the list of companies available on the application form. You may use only your company’s registered name. If your company has changed its name, search first using the registered name on your pay slip for the year the NHT deduction was made. If you cannot find it, search for the new name.
