In the realm of international taxation, it’s no secret that Double Taxation Agreements (DTAs), financial emigration (ceasing tax residency under the domestic tests), and the section 10(1)(o)(ii) expat tax exemption for South African expatriates can be intricate and confusing. As tax professionals, you play a crucial role in helping your clients navigate these complexities and make informed tax planning decisions.

To assist you in this endeavor, Tax Consulting SA is organizing a webinar specifically tailored to tax practitioners. We would like to invite you and your affiliated professionals to an online presentation where our experts will delve into the intricacies of these topics, allowing you to provide comprehensive guidance to your expatriate clients.

Key Talking Points

As tax practitioners, it is essential to stay abreast of the mandatory requirements for claiming the foreign exemption and to provide your clients with accurate guidance regarding ceasing tax residency by way of financial emigration (in terms of the South African domestic tests), or in terms of a double taxation agreement, and the alternative Section 10 exemption. Join our free webinar, designed exclusively for tax practitioners, where our experts will also be ready to answer any questions and concerns you may have.
