Watch, they will go into a coalition with EFF and EFF will eat them alive. Once those lunatics take power anywhere in SA we will miss the ANC.


23 October 2021 @ 7:52 pm

Their only goal is to suck up as much money as possible from the middle classes. They do not care about making things work


23 October 2021 @ 7:50 pm

The law in SA only applies to the people who are law abiding. For everyone elss its totally optional.


23 October 2021 @ 6:10 pm

You miss the point.

When money lands in your foreign account, it gets reported to the Reserve Bank and to SARS. If you have made a profit, you owe them taxes on that. If you have taken large amounts offshore you are also obliged to declare it and may be subject to tax.

Just because the cryto fans are evading tax doesn’t mean that SARS doesn’t have visibility of it. It just means that they haven’t followed up on them as yet.

But SARS doesn’t play around when it comes to penalties.

The amount of money the ANC has stolen, wasted, corrupted away, in Jhb, is just staggering.

It is unsustainable to have the ANC in power.

Two thirds of the employees, employed by the ANC’s patronage system, do absolutely nothing.

The city will be much better off with the ANC. They are horrifyingly bad.


23 October 2021 @ 5:54 pm

Can’t be – surely !!
No defeat for the mighty ANC and the Squirrel is possible !!!

Why would you bring back the money to a SA account when you can just spend the money directly from the foreign account?

If Haese and Myburgh want to see who has done the most damage to Nova, by a mile, all they need to do is take a selfie.


23 October 2021 @ 2:34 pm

It’s actually very simple for SARS.

Already there are mechanisms and laws in place whereby any money that hits a fiat account outside of South Africa that belongs to a South African is reported to the Reserve Bank and onward to SARS.

They don’t need to know anything about crypto. They just need to list companies dealing in crypto and tax anything landing in a South African account from those companies.


23 October 2021 @ 2:25 pm

SARS is the income stream for the gangster state. They serve no other purpose. May they all rot in hell

23 October 2021 @ 1:48 pm

Sometimes we are a whiny bunch. Americans are taxed for the income they earn outside the US even if they no longer live in the US, the only way to prevent this, is to relinquish their US citizenship. Permanently.


23 October 2021 @ 1:36 pm

As articles on Moneyweb tell us nearly every week many private sector employees and the self-employed have insufficient funds for retirement. Promoting this concept that pension investments have to somehow not just provide for one’s retirement but also act as a nest egg for beneficiaries (hence promoting a high commission living annuity) is unhelpful for most.

We could really do with some more creative products available at retirement. Instead of being offered ever more non-risk pooled products, why can I not, for example, buy at age 65 an annuity that would cover may basic needs with CPI inflation from the age of 75 or 80. It can be worth ZERO if I don’t make it to that age and that will help keep the upfront lump sum cost low – particularly in SA with short life expectancies. Then I can use my living annuity and investments to cover me for 10-15 years without all the stress of longevity risk through the best years of my retirement. Such products are available in the US.

Why do they always threaten the law abiding Tax payers.
They can not even trace the money Zuma and his cronies transfered legally to Dubai and Pakistan.

Do lifestyle audits on everybody that buys R3m+ homes and R500k+ cars. I know numerous people making 2-10 times my salary but I pay 90% more tax then them…


23 October 2021 @ 12:20 pm

a friend has a transport business importing goods into Zimbabwe. Every truck departs Mzansi with an envelope of USD for bribes along the way. His trucks are sometimes refrigerated so they just bribe through if they get stuck. To speed things up they should speed up the graft payments at the border.


23 October 2021 @ 11:39 am

Not any longer. I was hospitalised for Covid and belong to Discovery Classic Comprehensive medical scheme. Disco paid less than 50% of X-Rays, I was faced with a R6000.00 shortfall in hospital fees, The rental costs of the oxygen concentrator were not paid in full.

So I had to pay in just over R15K with a medical aid. Roll on NHI …

Stoffel iI see you are a cerebral athlete representing who exactly?


23 October 2021 @ 11:17 am

Thank you SARS, I will minimize my pension contributions in March/April next year.

I will spend what I earn on myself and for myself while you watch.

I am not your slave.


23 October 2021 @ 11:10 am

Please continue with the reporting. My Father-in-law sadly lost a lot of his retirement money with this bunch. He got in quite early, was happy as they paid initially. I didn’t know them but said the returns look suspicious. He was quite happy though as he was told he was investing in ‘brick-and-mortar’. He sadly passed away 2 months ago so will receive no justice. May they get what they deserve..

  2. Zimbabwean’s have been suffering under collective sanctions for years. These sanctions have destroyed the economy and created these economic refugees.

    The sanctions were aimed at the leadership, however it’s ordinary Zimbabwean’s who are suffering.

    Until the collective sanctions end, Zimbabwean should be allowed to live freely, without hindrance in South Africa.

  4. Besides corruption, the biggest problem we have in SA is an unsustably high number of illegal immigrants, including Zimbabwe.

    They know that it is more than 5million but it could stretch to about 10 million.

    This important of desperation and dependency is one of the key factors holding SA back.

  6. The idiotic ‘open-border policy’ that the EFF espouses, did you ever think of the consequences of such a move?
    How on earth would SA support all these people when already we are struggling to support even our own citizens?
    Why don’t you and the EFF’s top six lead by example and open your houses and accommodate all these people?

  12. Give it to them Ryk, obviously they don’t like you for reporting the truth

    Besides, you had a proxy to represent someone, which is only fair

    One wonders what they’re trying to hide

    I’m sure what they did is illegal, surely your friend should have a recourse to take them to task?

    ‘ Zimbabwean should be allowed to live freely, without hindrance in South Africa.”
    all whilst you pay for their education, medical services, social needs, security services and subsidised housing.
    Spot on for you.
    How many Zimbabweans do you have currently have staying in your house?

  20. So the government of Zimbabwe assumes no responsibility of their mess. It was the sanctions and nothing else. How delusional. Sanctions did not destroy Zimbabwe, Mugabe destroyed it.

  22. Lifestyle audits sure. Just like the ones we do on prominent politicians.

    One rule for you, another one for them. Can SARS explain how JZ can afford millions of legal fees a year?

    Or maybe they’re just not interested

  26. Back when the Rhodesian currency was at parity with the UK pound, and the country was known as the breadbasket of Africa, they still took up arms to “liberate” themselves from having enough to eat and a successful economy. Their failure today to take up arms, indicates that they are happy with being poor and starving. They deserve no sympathy whatsoever, because they are getting the government they deserve.

  32. The ANC will be a partner with the successful bidder and they will select a design that has never been tried before.

    It will cost 12x and become operational in the latter half of the century.

    Meantime we will import radioisotopes from Cuba at 10x the market rate.

    Sound familiar?

  34. I do not know what all the fuss is about, they got what they voted for.

    Venezuela and Cuba also got what they voted for, they voted with their hearts and not their minds and cannot eat anymore.

  36. Yeah, right! Like we all stand in the same queue at home affairs for an ID or passport around the block and round the clock hoping that you can see the one doctor whose pay is just the same standing up or lying down. Oh and pray Mr. Commy-Tzaar that his computer isn’t offline when you get to the front of the line to see him.

  40. The fundamental problem AARTO was meant to solve was the notification and summons process under the Criminal Procedure Act, which was routinely abused and flouted by local authorities who knew it was cheaper and easier for motorists to pay a fine than contest defective service in court. Those abuses persist to this day outside the AARTO pilot project areas.

    The simple solution was for all fines to be served either in person or by registered post, the same standard of service required for initiating documents in other judicial matters. It could have been fixed simply and cheaply two decades ago and a points-demerit system could easily have been bolted on.

    Instead, the DoT rejigged the concept to monetise traffic enforcement with no regard to actual road safety, and create parallel structures to the criminal justice system into which comrades could be parachuted with multi-million Rand salaries.

    The idea itself does not contain defects which could be cured by Parliament if OUTA wins; it is a massive slithering, mumbling defect in totality.

    We should return to the original plan. The problem is that the original plan involved reducing road deaths. The last half a decade of traffic law amendments and drafts provides no evidence that the DoT has the will, technical skill, or competence to do so.
