Broomberg on Tax Strategy 5 ed

Authors: Peter DachsAH DaveyDes Kruger ML Stein

A practical and strategic commentary on achieving tax efficiency, both corporate and personal.

Nearly every economic act has a tax implication, whether it relates to income tax or VAT. Timeous tax planning can often achieve positive tax savings, while a failure to apply your mind to the efficacy of a transaction could conceivably cause fiscal catastrophe. This work is aimed at providing the information necessary to enable parties to achieve tax efficiency and savings. The work discusses a range of contracts with tax implications including sale of a business, service contracts, damages/compensation payments.

Tax for public benefit organisations

Author: ML Stein 

The book covers all the provisions of the Income Tax Act that deal with PBOs, most importantly those that provide the requirements for approval by SARS of a PBO as a tax exempt body; those that deal with the donations tax position of donations to PBOs and the law governing the deduction of donations to PBOs. The book also deals with the provisions of the Income Tax Act covering the provisional tax status of PBOs, provisions dealing with the dividends tax and PBOs, the capital gains tax concessions for PBOs, some provisions on PBOs and corporate restructuring and how the recently introduced provisions dealing with small business funding entities affect PBOs.
