Expatriate Tax 2020 Update - Mauritius and South Africa

SPECIAL INVITATION FROM TAX CONSULTING SOUTH AFRICA

IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE SOUTH AFRICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IN MAURITIUS

The South African Chamber of Commerce (“SACC”) in Mauritius has secured a presentation by Jerry Botha, from Tax Consulting South Africa (“TCSA”), on the new expatriate tax law change promulgated under South African law effective 01 March 2020.

Jerry Botha has been instrumental in the fighting the tax law in Parliament, resulting in a partial win with the R1m threshold introduction in 2017. He will be sharing deeper insights with attendees which will allow them to make informed decisions on their future connections to South Africa, past tax compliance and future tax planning.
