Many South African residents want to make use of tax planning options to minimize their South African tax consequences.  Proper structuring is necessary to ensure that the most efficient options are made use of. If not, taxpayers might be faced with problems and unexpected tax consequences in future.  Structuring should not only take the current tax savings and benefits into account when structuring, but also the future tax that could arise in subsequent periods.  A holistic and long-term perspective is important in choosing the best tax planning option.


The third webinar in this series of three webinars will be taking place on 8 July 2020 .  This webinar will focus on explaining the Mauritian residency and tax system as a viable location for South Africans to take up tax residency and operate a business or profession. This webinar will deal with the following-
