Also want to know how this is enforced and collected? So I buy a eBook on my Kindle or an iOS newstand subscription from Apple, will SARS dig through all my credit card transactions and then impose VAT on those?
It's a pity that VAT is imposed for the purpose of collecting extra tax-revenue which will be blown by the government for all sorts of meaningless initiatives. It would have been much better to use the collected funds to incubate local players and create some competitive parity.
I can see how they can force the big players like itunes, amazon etc.
distance teaching programmes;
internet-based education programmes; or
Wow, I've never seen such determination to encourage piracy.
Is the idea to blanket charge VAT on all international online credit card transactions?? That is really the only way to enforce this, well at the consumer level.
