Managing Partner at Tax Consulting South Africa
Jerry Botha was the tax technical advisor to the Expatriate Petition Group, who argued against the complete repeal of the expatriate tax exemption in Parliament, resulting in a partial win with the R1m threshold introduction in 2017. TCSA is the largest fully independent tax practice in South Africa with over 90 talented professionals, with their tax technical expertise and ongoing relationship with the expatriate community resulting in the firm being approach by LexisNexis to author the first ever publication on Expatriate Tax.
The publication titled, Expatriate Tax: South Africans Citizens Working Abroad and Foreigners in South Africa, was released in October 2019 and is described by Judge DM Davis, Chairman of the Davis Tax Committee, as “a carefully considered book … dealing with the various tax implications of immigration/emigration … and will doubtless be essential reading…”.
Their professionals deal with all areas of South African taxation including rebutting overly conservative external audit findings, SARS rulings, SARS disputes and litigation, SARS refunds and holding SARS to account for interest on delayed refunds, tax due diligences, Voluntary Disclosure Programme applications, fixing heritage tax matters left in disarray by previous tax advisors, as well as the normal consulting and compliance services on corporate taxes, executive and employee taxes, high net worth families and businesses, international expansion or foreign groups into South Africa, VAT, customs and excise, and tax administrative law.
