what is S12J?

Designed to boost the local economy, Section 12J of the Income Tax Act stipulates that taxpayers who invest in qualifying Section 12J companies can write off 100% of their investment against their taxable income in the year they invest1.

Investors benefit from up to 45%² immediate tax relief, reducing the cost of the investment, providing downside protection and enhancing overall returns.
1Limited to R2.5m per individual / trust and R5m per company per annum
²At the maximum marginal South African income tax rate
