The webinar will deal with the provisional tax payments due on 31 August, the taxation of cross border service income, the deductions available to employees against remuneration income and the deductions available against investment income and capital gains.

The tax consequences of services rendered outside South Africa. In this webinar we will cover the general principle of the taxation of accruals from services rendered, the source of services and the section 10(1)(o) exemption. The implications of a double tax treaty on the resident status of a person that temporarily works abroad.

The deductions available to a person deriving remuneration income. The focus will be on the dreaded section 23(m), but will include the deduction of expenses related to the study at home.

The deductions available against investment income and capital gains on disposal of investments. Can one, for instance deduct the fees of portfolio manager.
