  • How to tax your employee if he uses two cars
    James, one of your employees, uses two cars interchangeably during the 2016 tax year. He sometimes uses his car, and the rest of the time he uses his wife's car. You give him a travel allowance of R120 000 for the year. But did you know that using two cars affects the tax on his travel allowance? It's not just a simple tax calculation.... ››› Read more

  • What do you do if you need to cancel an employee's leave?
    William applied for leave a month ago. He assured you he'd have all his deadlines in check, and his work finished. So you approved it and he paid for his romantic week away with his fiancĂ©. Everyone wins. But it's now three days before he leaves, and he's nowhere near reaching his deadline. What now? Do you let him go away? After all, you said he could have the days off. Or do you do the one thing you know is going to get him, and probably your other staff too, up in arms. Cancel his leave.... ››› Read more

  • 'Dee - I'd love to attend the VAT Masterclass but I think it's too expensive!'
  • 'Dee - I'd love to attend the VAT Masterclass but I think it's too expensive!'
    When we were taking our bookings for our May 2016 VAT Masterclasses, one of our prospective attendees said they wouldn't attend the VAT Masterclass as it was too expensive. This got me thinking about costs and the relativity of paying R6 495 ex VAT for the comprehensive 2 day VAT Masterclass course, versus what SARS could charge you if you make a simple mistake on your return. And then I thought of my client... Let's call her Mrs F. Here's the colossal mistake she made...... ››› Read more

  • Warning: You don't have a chance of conciliation at the CCMA anymore when it comes to EE issues!
  • Warning: You don't have a chance of conciliation at the CCMA anymore when it comes to EE issues!
    We've been talking a lot about the Employment Equity Act (EEA) Amendments lately. And that's because they're a big deal! Previously, most cases first had to go through conciliation at the CCMA before going to the Labour Court. This meant you had a chance to negotiate with an employee and come to a mutually beneficial agreement during conciliation. But now, one of the changes says an employee who earns less than the minimum earnings threshold, currently R205 433.30, can refer a complaint about Employment Equity issues or sexual harassment straight to arbitration at the CCMA. This means that both you and the employee present your cases to a judge and he decides what the outcome is.... ››› Read more

  • Revealed: How to reduce 80% of all your on-site accidents
  • Revealed: How to reduce 80% of all your on-site accidents
    What if I told you, there was a way you could reduce your on-site accidents by 80%? For example, if you dealt with 32 injuries and accidents in the last 12 months in your construction or manufacturing environment... I guarantee you could potentially drop that figure to seven incidents in the next 12 months. And less injured employees mean you save money! That's no absent employees you have to pay sick leave to, no replacement employees you have to train and pay and no increased COID tarrifs. In fact if you take my advice, you'll make even more money as your company's productivity increases. Read on as I reveal the process you need to use in your company now and how to use it successfully.... ››› Read more

  • Newsflash: SARS has three new ways to select you for a VAT audit
    Until now, SARS used to audit your VAT on a risk assessment basis. So if they found a couple of car dealers were evading VAT, they'd flag all car dealers as a risk, and audit them. But now, the Tax Administration Act has given SARS three new ways to select you for an audit. Which means your chances of being selected for a VAT audit just tripled. Read on to find out what these new ways are and how to make sure you're prepared.... ››› Read more

    As a designated employer, one of your duties is to prepare an Employment Equity (EE) Plan. Here are eight things to include in it. 1.
