Day 2 of National Treasury’s workshop for the 2019 budget cycle took place on Friday 7 December 2018. The agenda included the discussion of Item 23 – the foreign employment income exemption.

National Treasury noted that due to the extent of submissions made by the public together with submissions received in August 2018, they would need to hold a separate workshop which would deal exclusively with the submissions in respect of section 10(1)(o)(ii).

There was confirmation that the workshop would take place in January 2019 and that an email will be sent to all parties that made submissions on this topic. National Treasury extended an urgent request for any further submissions to be submitted before January.
