This ensures that students must respond to the external or incoming communications (e.g. paying an account or processing and order). They must also generate internal operations (e.g. processing salary slips, engage in marketing activities, pay over unemployment insurance funds (UIF) and pay-as-you-earn taxation (PAYE) amount to avoid penalties) to ensure the continued existence of the business.
