Trevor's Mother of a tax problem.


Cape Town, 9 September 2023 – Trevor Noah's mother finds herself in a tax pickle and a not-so-funny solution gets proposed.

International earners know that if you move from one country to another, an interesting tax opportunity arises when you detach from one tax regime and lock onto another. There is a middle gap where, unless you are diligent, you can easily succumb to evasion. The collecting authority is a bit vague and the bureaucrats, like all bureaucrats tend to avoid complicated job interventions. Indulge this gap and the tax bill can soon mount.

This tax dilemma is particularly treacherous for those in the entertainment industry, where expenses can easily spiral, and double tax stalks every transaction. Section 47B of the Income Tax Act No. 58 of 1962 (the Act) imposes a final tax at 15%. (a final tax means you can't offset expenses.)

When the horns of tax-destiny close, one of the techniques on the darker side of the accounting profession is to deflect income to an associated party. "It wasn't me that earned it". This is particularly relevant the day after a concert when a 15% withholding tax is due, and there are other more pressing expenses to defray.

With that in mind, an article earlier this year by Thandeka Mthethwa in The South African detailing Trevor's mother, Patricia's Tax liability of R25M jumped out. In his jokes, she is a much loved single mom who hussles as a domestic servant. One can only assume that the tax is a royalty payable on being the butt of the jokes.

Then the recent publication of a sponsorship deal for R 33 million with the Department of Tourism ticked my conspiracytheoryometer'. Is it only me that has done so many tax returns and audits that can't help see R25M plus penalties as R33 M? Is it possible that SA's favourite comedian, joins the President as not paying tax like the rest of us?

On the surface this appears harmless enough. Trevor does a morning's work, a few commissions, legal and accounting fees and Trevor's mother can go back to her day job.

Uh-uh - This is a dangerous transaction. International Financial Standards with good Governance expects Tax Revenue to be run separately from the executive. You can't go in and make a deal to wrangle your way out without looking like a Limpopo cattle dealer with connections in SARS and the Reserve Bank. A number of high level officials in The Department of Tourism and SARS will be required to compromise their ethics. This move is going to attract the attention of the IRS and the Financial Action Task Force, evaluation our Grey Listing.

Trevor let me make a suggestion:

You love South Africa as we do. No need to game our system. South Africa, under Greylist review, is not the time to be using your Government connections, mudding the waters and making our name "gat". Come clean on your mothers pickle. Pay the R 25 M, pay the penalties, pay the tax on the income you use to pay the back tax.

Yep Bru- you are in for North of R50 M, but it is a lot cheaper than having a prosecutor in the Southern District of New York make her reputation out of you.

Then - when you have made the payments, apply for a tax certificate, apply for a Tender at the Department of Tourism, soon you could be the Face of South Africa and we would be proud.

For Immediate Release

TurboCASH Accounting Project Addresses BRICS Meeting and South Africa's Priorities


Cape Town, 23 August 2023 – The TurboCASH Accounting Project, a leading advocate for transparent financial practices and economic development, has issued a statement on the upcoming BRICS Meeting, emphasizing the imperative for South Africa and fellow BRICS nations to derive significant value from the meeting while maintaining ethical and political distinctions.

The BRICS meeting aims to foster collaboration among Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa – collectively known as BRICS – to bolster economic growth, advance development initiatives, and address shared global challenges. In this context, the TurboCASH Accounting Project underscores the importance of distinguishing between countries and political parties for example the Republic of South Africa and its political parties, particularly the ANC (African National Congress), to ensure transparent and ethical governance.

"It is paramount that the Republic of South Africa and its political entities, like the ANC, maintain a clear demarcation when it comes to accepting donations," stated Philip Copeman, Project Leader of the TurboCASH Accounting Project. "We firmly assert that no political party should accept donations, directly or indirectly from any BRICS government, company, institution, or entity funded by BRICS entities. This principle safeguards the integrity of our nation's political processes and ensures that decision-making remains free from external influence."

Furthermore, the TurboCASH Accounting Project highlights a critical priority for BRICS nations in the context of the ongoing geopolitical situation. The organization urges BRICS countries to collectively address the situation involving Russia and Ukraine. Specifically, it calls for concerted efforts to persuade Russia to swiftly withdraw from Ukraine, minimizing the human and economic costs associated with the conflict.

"The TurboCASH Accounting Project firmly believes that the best course of action for BRICS countries is to engage with Russia", stated Copeman. "BRICS should call upon Russia to reconsider its actions and withdraw from Ukraine. We acknowledge that such a magnanimous withdrawal by Russia will be costly, but the financial benefit to the collective BRICS economies will exceed ten times that cost. The details of these figures are contained in a special report available to TurboCASH subscribers.

In conclusion, the TurboCASH Accounting Project emphasizes the need for BRICS nations, including South Africa, to approach the upcoming BRICS Meeting with a clear commitment to transparent governance and collaborative efforts for global stability and prosperity. By maintaining ethical standards, distinguishing political entities from national interests, and advocating for peaceful resolutions, BRICS countries can work collectively to pave the way for a brighter future.

Can The EU legislate Artificial Intelligence?

This week the EU moved to legislate AI.

Date : 18 July 2023



Here is what CoPilot had to say :


"This is a good thing. AI is a powerful tool that can be used for good or bad. It is important that we have a framework to ensure that AI is used for good."

Copeman :

STOP for one moment and consider what it means to "Legislate AI".
That is equivalent to "Legislate human intelligence" or "Legislate Thinking".
For AI is simply an extension of human intelligence.

We would be putz's if we did not make our paid Business Class Subscriber version a better deal than the free version.

Buy

"Legislate Thinking"?.

1) What does that even mean?

2) Can we even do that?

3) What are the consequences?

Make it as simple as possible and no simpler.

Copeman :

I put it to you that it is impossible and counter productive to legislate thinking.

The Open Source GNUGPL 3 licence is all we require to ensure that AI is used for good.
