The Expat Tax Explained Tue 9th Jul, 2019 £24.00



Up until now, South Africans living and working abroad for more than 183 days (60 days being consecutive) were able to be income exempt from South African Tax.  An amendment to the South Africa Income Tax Act No. 58 of 1962 is set to change this when it comes into effect in March 2020, and will require South Africans living and working abroad to pay tax in South Africa on up to 45% of their gross foreign employment income if it exceeds R1 million per annum gross. 
The majority of South Africans living abroad do not understand the implications of this new amendment, and how it will affect them. Join us on July 9, 2019 to hear Professor Deborah Tickle explain how the "expat tax" amendment to the South African Income Tax Act could affect you if you are working, or living permanently abroad. Professor Tickle will further clarify the consequences of the new amendment for South Africans not ordinarily resident in South Africa, but who may have assets in the country, South Africans who have permanently left the country, and those who have not settled their tax affairs (through financial emigration), and as such may also be subject to the changes depending on their individual circumstances.
Sponsored by Orbis and hosted in conjunction with the South African Chamber of Commerce UK.

Featuring: Roelof Temmingh

I would like to inform you of some upcoming concerts in London before I head to South Africa for the summer (well, winter!)

I am soon finishing my undergraduate studies at the Royal College of Music and will be playing my final recital on Friday 24 May 3:05pm in the Amaryllis Fleming concert hall of the Royal College of Music. I will be playing works by Debussy, Medtner and.. myself!

Other dates include:

Every morning this week, (14-17 May) at 8:45am - St Georges Hanover Square, as part of a series called "Morning Calm". 10 minutes of reflective music in a beautiful space to start the day.

7 June 1pm - St Mary Abbott's church Kensington. With saxophonist Sophia Elger.

7 June 6:30pm - V&A museum. Solo recital.

11 June 1pm - St Stephens Gloucester Road. Solo recital.

22 June 4pm - Grosvenor Chapel, Mayfair. Memorial concert for John Addison - chamber music with other RCM players (plus I'll be playing the Murder She Wrote theme tune..!)

30 June 3pm - St Anne's Church Kew. Beethoven and Brahms trios with Poppy Beddoe (clarinet) and Florian Belbeoch (cello)

26,28,29 June & 1 July 7pm - I'll be playing the piano part in Bernstein's chamber opera "Trouble in Tahiti" in the RCM's Britten Theatre. Bound to be great fun!

3 July 7:30pm - Amaryllis Fleming concert hall. featuring in saxophone concert, playing a Saxophone+piano quintet!

The events mentioned on the flyer are mostly internal RCM concerts and can be booked at https://www.rcm.ac.uk/events/. However, with the exception of the opera, I am sure it would be fine just to turn up and acquire tickets at the door.
