QUESTION

There may be a shock on the cards on 21 Feb when the Finance Minister announces that there will be a 2% VAT increase. What effects will this have?

ANSWER

It will generate the much needed tax revenue that government needs to address its widening budget deficit. It’s a good choice.
It will weaken the ANC. They rely on the poor vote and the poor will be most affected by the VAT increase. The ANC must tread carefully here.
There will be little change. It is just more money for government fat cats to pocket.
