Frequently Asked Questions

1How do I get personal expenses allowed as tax deductions?
Unfortunately, you can’t, but there are some expenses that might appear personal that have a strong business component.
2How do I pay less tax?
Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s but there are some things you can legitimately do to reduce your tax. Get in touch with us and we'll see how we can help you.
3Is our economy going to make a U turn anytime soon?
Moody’s is one of the rating agencies that has not dropped SA out of its investment rating status. Whilst economists are slightly divided about whether this will happen or not the general sentiment is that we will hold it together. This is one of the many important signs our economy has hope of a recovery. Other positive signs are the management of our power utility and emphasis placed on getting skilled people into our country. It's not easy but there are signs a recovery is on the cards. It is not all local, the US-China trade war upsets foreign exchange markets, some balance there will definitely aid a recovery.
4How do I interpret these financial statements, what do they tell me about my business?
They tell you where you are going right and wrong, where the problem areas are and this is what you can do to fix it.
5By when do I need to pay this tax and is there anything you can do to reduce the amount I need to pay?
Companies and individuals registered as provisional taxpayers pay twice a year and there is a third optional top-up which prevents further interest accumulating. Payment dates are determined relative to year-end and the 6 month mark in the financial year. Late payments attract a 10% penalty and there is a nasty penalty of 20% on certain taxpayers when underpaying provisional tax payments. Legally reducing tax payments is an essential part of tax planning and we are well positioned to assist you. For example; business owners often forget to include business expenditure incurred by themselves, different rates of tax apply to various enterprises, especially micro and small business enterprises, and paying the right amount of tax to prevent excessive interest or penalties.
6How come I have made a profit and yet there is no money in the bank account?
Two reasons; excessive drawings/ capital payments and working capital management issues – especially unpaid debtors. Two sources to assist you, the cash flow statement included in your financial statements and/ or a cash flow projection which we will gladly assist you in compiling.
