Perfectly in line with keeping the masses dumb, because dumb people are easy to get votes from.. give them a t-shirt and free food every 5 years and you'll be in power forever.Because the wANCers want to push this country firmly back to the stone ages. Educated people don't vote for them you see
So question time:
This applies to services you pay money for? Or do they now want to make you pay VAT for free stuff?
This IMHO is the beginning of a slippery slope where you pay tax to use the internet.. in which case there is really no point in living in this country anymore. Then I may as well move to Zimbabwe, because there, this **** doesn't exist
And how are they going to force companies outside of SA to do this?
There are opportunities for public comment. I've had a look at the draft and am horribly disappointed in the quality of the draft - regardless of the underlying issues. There is a gaping hole in the entire thing which I need to query.Is there any way we can STOP this from going forward? Since we are allowed public comment, can we not use the power of the internet (big sites like Lifehacker etc) and ask for their comment too (template they can submit)?
This should not be allowed to happen and i cannot sit here typing this comment and do nothing in the coming months.
There is more than a slight element of truth to thatSlight correction: tax is something for the TAX people to deal with.
I swear they encourage complex legislation for their own benefit.
/tin-foil hat time...
A company taking money in Rands, locally, will probably be registered as a VAT Vendor (iTunes, Google Apps, XBOX, PlayStation Network, etc) and they will charge you the VAT and then pay it over to SARS.
