Taxation of Corporate Transactions

Tax considerations for Companies and Shareholders


The disclosure of specific corporate transactions has been significantly increased in terms of the new corporate tax returns (the ITR14's), assisting SARS in identifying high risk corporate transactions. The proposed transfer pricing guidelines in respect of excessive debt may force foreign lenders to SA companies to waive some or all of the debt owed to them and/or the SA Company to convert the relevant debt to equity. The tax efficiency of maintaining long term local debt will also have to be considered by companies due to tax amendments seeking to deem the debt to be equity, interest payments in respect of the debt to be dividends and therefore non-deductible for tax purposes in the company's hands.

With buyers no longer willing to purchase companies and preferring instead to purchase selected business assets out of the company, all the tax consequences of the sale of a business versus the sale of shares must be clearly understood.

Companies being wound up, shareholder loans being waived or converted, disposal or replacement of business assets and companies distributing non-dividends to shareholders all have capital gains tax (CGT) consequences of which taxpayers must be aware.

Please join us as we address the normal tax consequences for both the company and its shareholders of the issues listed above and many other corporate transactions including:
