More on Small Business Tax in South Africa

Albert Einstein said, “The hardest thing to understand in the world is income tax.”

If he struggled, what hope for the rest of us?

Small Business Tax inspires despair at what seem impossible odds stacked against us.

But it is much more than the cost of income tax each year. It’s losing huge tax gains when we sell our business. Or as we buy a business. Or when we retire.

This is why corporates retain fleets of lawyers before any big change to help them slash tax costs.

For instance, SARS offers an option to save up to R810,000 tax when you sell your business. If you get the timing and ownership right.

But SARS will not remind you the option exists. You must know about it to claim these savings.
Which is tough if you don’t know about it in the first place.
One of my readers heard about this by accident. He had just sold his firm. An accountant said it in passing.

Saving tax is too important to leave to others. At the very least we should know enough to be able to ask the right questions.

Tax law comprises 600 pages of words and definitions and exceptions. Worse, it changes each year.

You don’t need to know it all. Just 6 pages of simple English will give a small business owner enough to know:

  1. What trading structure you should aim for. (There are 6 with widely different tax rates.)
  2. What tax structure you should use for the coming year. (There are 4 with rates from 0% to 45%)
  3. What holding structure gives you the best lifetime tax savings.
  4. When you should sell a business to get the best tax savings.
  5. How you can structure a business sale to get the best tax savings.
  6. How to leverage your own business to give you a better retirement than 99% of us. (You don’t need to spend a cent extra to end your career with millions more invested.)

Peter O’Halloran is the brains behind our course to answer these questions.
He brings two decades of tax experience to back you up.
His focus is to help small business owners resolve SARS Small Business Tax queries.
You will get a 6-page summary written in simple English like Dr Seuss used in The Cat in the Hat.
The Income Tax Act otherwise needs a University degree to read. Even then it’s like chewing pebbles.

Peter Carruthers is the host…
I have worked with Peter O’Halloran for almost two decades.
He’s helped dozens of my small-business clients with tax issues related to themselves, their businesses, and their Trusts.
He is the most down-to-earth person I know on these tax issues.

With grateful thanks and very best wishes
