The Davis Tax Committee has identified potential amendments to wealth taxes that could result in increased tax revenue for the fiscus. The 2015 Taxation Law Amendments to the taxation of deceased estates will result in the more efficient collection by SARS of taxes triggered both at the death of a taxpayer and during the subsequent winding up of the estate. The maintenance of accurate documentation will be essential in order to respond to the increased verification expected from SARS.

As a myriad of taxation legislation becomes applicable both at the date of death of a natural person taxpayer and thereafter, an understanding of the tax consequences of all the legislation, old and new, is vital to ensure efficient tax planning and sufficient liquidity.
