The significance of the small business sector is highlighted in the National Development Plan which sets a goal of creating 11million jobs by 2030, 90% of which are expected to be created by SMMEs!

'Small' does not mean 'simple' when it comes to tax matters. The tax legislation is complex and small business owners carry huge tax risks.. and making mistakes can be extremely costly! Coupled with this, there is uncertainty as the Davis Tax Committee is currently reviewing the limited tax relief that is available for SMMEs.

This webinar will focus on the tax issues specifically relevant to the SMME sector: from income tax, capital gains tax, provisional tax, employees’' tax and dividends tax to VAT. Find out what tax relief and planning opportunities are available to you and what risk areas you need to watch out for.

The investment in participating in this webinar will pay for itself many times over as you will come away with a wealth of information that you can immediately apply in your business. You can't afford to miss it...
