When debt is reduced, other than by repayment, too many taxpayers only focus on the tax consequences for the lender and not the borrower (the debtor).

The two provisions in the Income Tax Act that dictate the tax consequences for the debtor have recently been amended: section 19 and paragraph 12A in the Eighth schedule.

Please join us as we examine the amendments to paragraph 12A and the capital gains tax (CGT) consequences for the debtor of debt reduction.

Course Content

We will examine the following:

  • What is a “debt benefit”?
  • New CGT consequences for the debtor of “debt benefit”
  • Consequences of bequest of debt back to debtor on death of lender
  • New consequences for debt reduced by donation
    • Can R100 000 of the debt still be waived?
    • What if the lender is non-resident?
  • Effect of converting debt to equity
  • Implications for business rescue
