Got Cryptocurrency? Here’s How Much SARS Wants…

Cryptocurrencies are not new, but recent developments, including the massive gains they experienced since last year, have placed them under the spotlight. South Africans’ notable interest in them, and SARS’ renewed focus on the wealthy’s undeclared assets, together with its improved capabilities to track taxpayers’ transactions, suggest SARS is intentional about tracking these activities and assets.

Youth Day: Why Our Young People Are So Important to Your Business  
How SMMEs Can Benefit Financially from the Fourth Industrial Revolution  
8 Tips for Marketing Your Business on Instagram  

As we commemorate Youth Day in June, we are reminded of the impact the youth can have on the future of a country. The impact of today’s young South Africans will be even more pronounced as they become the voting and taxpaying citizens of tomorrow, and the leaders who will chart the course of our economy. 

For business owners, too, the youth is immensely important, not only as the taxpayers, voters and leaders of the future, but also as the consumer market of tomorrow and as the workforce of tomorrow. This creates compelling reasons for companies to invest in the youth to ensure their own sustainable future, and to investigate the incentives available to do so. 


The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) refers to the blurring of boundaries between the physical, digital, and biological worlds. It’s a fusion of advances in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, the Internet of Things (IoT), 3D printing, genetic engineering, quantum computing, and other technologies. This leads to organisational and structural changes, some not so readily welcomed, particularly by SMMEs.

These may include increased spending on technology, considering running costs and maintenance et al.  Could this present an opportunity to restructure expenditure and rotate capital within these small businesses, giving a better chance of success?

We share some thoughts on how your business can address this question…
