The Practical Tax Handbook provides practical tax advice in plain English (with no legalese), with step-by-step instructions, checklists and many, immediately understandable examples to make sure you know your rights when it comes to SARS, never pay too much tax or end up with penalties of as much as 200%


How to make yourself invisible

to SARS...



Dear Taxpayer,

SARS is hungry for money.

Your money.

It's teetering on the edge of around a R150 million shortfall... and if it falls in, lights will go off, roads will crumble and water will become undrinkable.

So, SARS' only hope is to go after taxpayers with a vengeance.

But not individual taxpayers.

No. It's set its sights on corporate taxpayers, like you.

And that's why it doesn't want you to see this letter...

Because with it, you'll uncover no less than 139 ways for your business to legally pay less tax.

Here are the first five (for example)...

  • The 22 little known allowances that you could deduct so you pay less tax
  • The 7 expenses you incur for legal activities that you can claim deductions on
  • A 3-point checklist that guarantees the repairs you make to your office, machinery or tools will qualify as a deduction
  • The 3 ways to deduct your bad debts
  • Seven expenses to always include in your travel claim to maximise your tax savings

But wait.

Deductions aren't the only way to reduce your tax bill. Here's another completely legal strategy...

The key to reducing how much tax you pay is staying off SARS' radar


SARS conducted 1.8 million audits. It's added 100s of new tax collectors and auditors to its payroll and each one has his own collection targets to meet. This means two things:

  1. If you’re not compliant, your chances of an audit this year has just doubled, and
  2. You will pay more in penalties.

But I have a perfectly legal way for you to reduce your risk, including...

What you can do to avoid unnecessary attention from SARS using these 6 secrets

How to make every transaction legit with this one simple step

The one letter you must ask to see BEFORE any audit starts... or refuse to comply

Still... knowing your rights, and insisting that SARS honours them - is only ONE battle to win in reducing your tax burden.

Which is why SARS doesn't want you to learn about the 139 ways the Practical Tax Handbook has identified to help your business pay less tax, legally.

And that's EXACTLY why I want to get this information to you today!

But, before you read more about what this service has uncovered, here's why you should listen...

A combined experience of 91 years... and a mission


I'm David van Niekerk and I have one single mission: To help businesses like yours save tax. My team and I at the Practical Tax Handbook service have developed a perfectly legal way to do just that. Let's meet the team.

Ettiene Retief - Chairman of the Tax Technical Committee at South African Institute of Professional Accountants

He's on a first name basis with Trevor, Pravin and now Oupa... all so he can fight for the cause of taxpayers like you.

Every chance he gets he bends their ears and challenges SARS' interpretation and application of South Africa's tax laws. As a chairman of the Tax Technical Committee at South African Institute of Professional Accountants, he's in a position that those in power can't ignore.


Together, this team works day and night to uncover every legal way to help you protect your rights and to reduce how much tax your business must pay.

What they find is so powerful, SARS doesn't want you to see it.

Here are just three examples of what you can expect from this tax team of experts in the Practical Tax Handbook .

How to structure your salary to save R1 000s
(Yes, you can still save on tax this way)


Let's say your company pays you a gross monthly salary of R10 000 with medical contributions of R1 500. Then the medical aid company increases its premium to R2 000.

Under the usual system of structuring salaries, you would make a salary sacrifice of R500. AND you'd need to comply with all the legal requirements to make that sacrifice as well. Then you can only claim your tax-free portion back in the month you make your contribution...

The Practical Tax Handbook team has a better way to do this, one that doesn't involve sacrifice and extra work. One that SARS won't look at twice, reassess and penalise you for.

In fact, the salary structuring solutions that the Practical Tax Handbook team has uncovered allow you more leeway to structure salaries in the future without affecting your gross salary now.

These include...

The 11 deductions salary earners can still claim

The three non-negotiable requirements your employment contracts must meet to minimise your tax

The most common mistake taxpayers make when calculating their pension fund deductions... and what you must to do to avoid it

Five tax safeguards to include in your employment contracts

The solutions also allow you to know the exact cost to company of all your employees, so making management decisions will be easier... especially when review time comes around again.

Then there's this 100% legal strategy...

Save R26 983 by keeping an accurate logbook

Maintaining an accurate logbook is a tedious affair but the benefit of additional tax savings may make it worthwhile.

An accurate logbook means you can base your claim for travel expenses for business and private use on the actual distances travelled. You may also be able to reduce the taxable benefit of the company vehicle you use. No logbook puts you at the mercy of the provisions of the Income Tax Act, that can in some cases be extremely costly.

In fact, if you’re using the gazette rates per kilometre method for calculating your travel claims, then no logbook means no claim!

Our practical example below shows you how you can easily save R26 983 by keeping an accurate logbook.

Who can benefit from an accurate logbook?

  • Sole proprietors, commission earners
  • Employees who receive travel allowances
  • Employees, directors, members, etc. using a company owned vehicle

Example: No logbook

Mr Smith uses his personal vehicle for business purposes. He didn’t maintain an accurate logbook. His vehicle costs him R250 000 including Vat, but excluding finance charges. His travel allowance is R69 970 for the tax year ending 29 February 2012. He travelled a total distance of 17 600 kilometres for the period 1 March 2014 to 29 February 2015.

Mr Smith won’t have a claim because he didn’t keep a logbook.

Example: Logbook kept

Assume that Mr Smith maintained an accurate logbook as follows.

Business travel 10 518 km
Private travel7 082 km
Total distance travelled17 600 km

Mr Smith’s travel deduction is calculated as follows.

Fixed cost = fixed cost/Total km: ((79 185/17 600) x 100)= 479.26c
Fuel cost= 120.50c
Maintenance cost= 41.6c
Total cost= 641.36c

Business km x total cost 10 518 x 641.36c

Allowable deduction= R67 458
Tax saving based on a marginal tax rate of 40%= R26 983

Mr Smith will benefit in paying R26 983 less in taxes, compared to not keeping a logbook.
