One-of-a-kind Solution against the Financial Crisis

The state of the economy motivates entrepreneurs to create special deals for the consumer – from massive discounts on motor vehicles to two-for-the-price-of-one specials at retail stores. Some businesses include pensioner discounts on weekdays, for example on movie tickets or pensioner days at Builder’s Warehouse.

Wallrich management has first-hand knowledge of how the economic situation is making an impact on our own clients. Businesses trying to survive have tried various solutions, including consequential layoffs of employees and drastic measures to cut marketing and sales costs.

Users can attach photos, videos and media to Tweets that drive traffic to their website. Users simply have to add a few lines of HTML to their webpage, and those who Tweet links to that content will have a “Card” added to the Tweet that is visible to all of their followers.

Guidance from SARS on Provisional Tax Estimates

Read More

All corporate taxpayers as well as individuals earning significant investment income or operating businesses in their own name are subject to provisional tax. The provisional tax system essentially provides fiscus with a mechanism to collect income tax during the course of the year. The legislation requires provisional taxpayers to estimate their taxable income for a year in the middle of the year and once again at the end of the year. The provisional tax payments made are then based on these estimates.
