  • 北京赛车pk10下载:VENTURE CAPITAL COMPANIES (VCC)

    What?are Venture Capital Companies?

    One of the main challenges to the growth of small and medium-sized businesses and junior mining exploration is access to equity finance. To assist these sectors in terms of equity finance, Government has implemented a tax incentive for investors in these enterprises through a venture capital company (VCC) regime.

    VCCs are intended to be a marketing vehicle that will attract retail investors. An investor is any taxpayer who qualifies to invest in an approved VCC. They have the benefit of bringing together small investors as well as concentrating investment expertise in favour of the small business sector. There are no special tax benefits for the VCC itself, only standard tax rules will apply.
    ?

    Who are they for?

    北京赛车pk10技巧 www.zzff8.com From 1 January 2009, investors can claim amounts incurred on acquiring VCC shares as a deduction from income.? This deduction will not be subject to recoupment if the VCC shares are held for longer than five years.

    A company must meet all of the following preliminary requirements to be able to get a SARS?approved VCC status:

    • The company must be a resident;
    • The sole object of the company must be the management of investments in qualifying companies (i.e. investees);
    • The company’s tax affairs must be in order; and
    • The company must be licensed in terms of section?8(5) of the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act, 2002.

    Please note: Persons who intend to or do make investments into a SARS approved VCC, may under no circumstances request a tax directive for purposes of section 12J under paragraph 11 of the Fourth Schedule to the Income Tax Act, in order to reduce his or her tax liability; or accept any advice from persons who indicate that such tax directives may be issued.

    The VCC regime is subject to a 12 year sunset clause that ends on 30 June 2021.
