#WATCH Since its introduction in 2001, Capital Gains Tax (CGT) has become a significant tax that warrants thoughtful consideration in business transactions and private transactions for individual taxpayers.


CGT is usually triggered on the transfer of wealth, but some ordinary business transactions can also have CGT consequences. In any restructuring of an organisation, CGT becomes a serious consideration, and lack of planning could result in significant tax liability for the parties. Legislative amendments in recent years and the introduction of anti-avoidance measures have increased the complexity of CGT.

Current issues in CGT include:

  • CGT consequences of a primary residence used in trade and/or as a home-office.
  • Receipt of tax-exempt dividends regarded as “proceeds” for CGT purposes.
  • Risks and considerations for disposing shares in a private company that is subject to a suspensive condition.
  • Involuntary disposal of assets (roll-over relief).
  • Incurring capital losses in transactions with connected persons.
  • CGT and B-BBEE restructuring.

Webinar content

In this webinar, we will take a practical look at selected CGT topics, which will include the following:

  • Dividends treated as proceeds (par 43A of the 8th Schedule).
  • Roll-over: Involuntary disposal (par 65 of the 8th Schedule).
  • A primary residence used partly for trade, such as a home office (paragraphs 44 to 51A of the 8th Schedule).
  • Capital losses and connected persons (paragraphs 39 & 56 of the 8th Schedule).

Competencies developed in this CPD

After attending this webinar, you will be:

  • Competent to advise clients on the scope of paragraph 43A of the 8th Schedule and calculate a taxable capital gain in terms of this paragraph.
  • Able to understand the meaning of an “extraordinary dividend” in terms of paragraph 43A of the 8th Schedule to the Income Tax Act (ITA).
  • Effectively apply the rollover relief for involuntary disposals in terms of paragraph 65 of the 8th Schedule to the ITA.
  • Competent to calculate the portion of the capital gain on the disposal of a primary residence, used partly for trade purposes, which will not qualify for the R2m primary residence exclusion.
  • Able to advise clients on the capital loss consequences for transactions between “connected persons.”
