One of the first entrants to the South African 12J venture capital landscape is celebrating its fourth year of profitable returns to shareholders. Anuva Investments Ltd (Anuva) reported R14.1 million in profit for its 2018 financial year and distributed R10.5 million to its Class-A shareholders – achieving an impressive 8% dividend yield. “We were incorporated in 2014 as a section 12J compliant venture capital company (VCC) making us the perfect partner for South African taxpayers looking to maximise the tax allowance on offer under section 12J of the Income Tax Act,” says Neill Hobbs, co-founder and CEO at Anuva Investments. The company has already raised more than R235 million in capital. Section 12J is South Africa’s answer to a popular business expansion scheme launched in the United Kingdom in 1994 – the Enterprise Investment Scheme. The tax incentives offered to UK investors under this scheme underpinned investments in more than 25000 small unlisted UK-based businesses over the decade ending 2015. In July 2009 the South African Revenue Services (SARS) introduced a similar tax incentive to encourage ordinary South African taxpayers to invest into qualifying small, medium and micro-sized enterprises (SMMEs) via an approved 12J VCC. Section 12J seeks to stimulate the local economy and create jobs by offering taxpayers a 100% tax allowance on investments into companies that meet certain qualifying requirements. Ordinary taxpayers can claim the full tax allowance provided they remain invested in the section 12J compliant opportunity for a period of five years. Although capital gains tax rules apply upon exiting such investments, financial modelling confirms greater efficiency using a 12J in a CGT scenario, together with the potential for significant returns over that period and thanks to the upfront tax allowance. Interest in section 12J investments picked up in 2014 as investors sought to alleviate their rising tax liabilities on the one hand and bolster . . .

Johannesburg, 3 January 2019 - As the holiday season comes to a close, many of us make plans to ‘spring clean’ our lives, our cupboards, our homes and so much more. However, just as you plan to clean your personal space, de-clutter your surroundings, office managers and those responsible for the cleaning and maintenance of work spaces, should consider the benefits of using the quiet period to give the work or office environment a deep clean. 1. Downtime makes for good organisation While staff are away, there is likely to be very little disruption to the process and more importantly, to the colleagues of the company. The quiet period is the perfect time to get your ‘house in order’, as they say. During the year, when everyone is doing the grind and are too busy to side step their office space or use different bathrooms, it can be a great inconvenience to do more than the required cleaning and upkeep of the office environment. 2. Image is everything First impressions are important. In psychology it is defined as the event when one person first encounters another person, object or scene. In legal terms, a first impression is defined as a first consideration or judgement. In an interview scenario, you are being judged by your employer, however some employers simply don’t think about your judgement of their environment. An unkempt, unhygienic environment does not make for a good portrayal of the work environment and can leave any visitor to the office, with unintended and even unsuspecting forms of a negative mental image of the business. ‘Judging the book by its cover’, is not just a saying, it happens and as beings who are influenced by image, a negative appearance can greatly tarnish the image of your brand - and it does not matter who is affected because word of mouth makes for an impression by everyone with whom this information is shared. 3. Hygiene makes for a healthy work environment Absenteeism from work can be linked to many things in society . . .
In a recent drive to improve communications with prospective clients, Compare Car Insurance has taken the decision to implement a few changes to it's website. Whilst these updates may seem simple and obvious, they are fundamental improvements to the customer journey and will enable a caller to speak with a call operative in their preferred native language. It can be very difficult to fully engage with a client and understand their insurance needs if they are forced to speak a language that they are not 100% comfortable with. Many clients become frustrated when they are automatically forced into an initial sales funnel that attempts to determine both language and gender. It's for this reason that Compare Car Insurance has decided to better serve our customer by giving them the option of selecting in which language the call centre sales representative first speaks to them. A secondary gender selector further enables the system to select which companies are going to be the best fit. If for example you are a female, then the First For Women insurance products are a most likely fit and the quoting process is going to be tailored to suit your female profile. First For Women have invested a great deal of expertise in tailoring insurance products that are more affordable for it's clientele and Compare Car Insurance is able to streamline this initial contact process by matching clients to appropriate insurance products. Compare Car Insurance is committed to bringing you multiple quotes from only the best South African insurance companies. Expect these and other beneficial product and quoting improvement in the future. CLICK HERE to submit your press release to MyPR.co.za.

Author : Bitcoins Basics 101 PDF Ebook by DAVID DODGE and BRIAN DIXON Because it's somewhat complicated to use, there's a chance that a lot of the world's population may not use it, which will affect whether Bitcoin continues to grow or not. This is changing gradually as Bitcoin software becomes easier to use, but a lot more work needs to be done before Bitcoin really takes off. Luckily, there's a lot of financial gain to be had by those who can come up with easier ways to use Bitcoin. This means there's going to be a lot of people working on the problem of Bitcoin being difficult for some people to understand and use. It is a poor use of computing power Last but not least, you have to consider that Bitcoin mining takes quite a bit of processing power. This computational power could be used for other more productive reasons. Some say that the Bitcoin network is already the world's largest peer-to-peer network - at least when it comes to processing and number crunching. This may not seem like a big thing, but you have to consider all the electricity that's needed to keep all the computers on the network going. CHAPTER THREE. ADVICE AND TIPS FOR BITCOIN. For this last chapter, we're going to stick with some simple advice and tips for you to get the most out of your experience with Bitcoin. Become Involved. One of the very best ways you can learn more about Bitcoin is to become involved yourself. To do this, you just need to create a Bitcoin Wallet by installing the Bitcoin Client. Once you do this, you're going to be part of the network. You can use one of the methods mentioned earlier in the ebook to start to collect your own bitcoins and watch them increase or decrease in value over time. Be Wary. At the same time, you want to be cautious . . .

Author : Bitcoins Basics 101 PDF Ebook by DAVID DODGE and BRIAN DIXON This is actually an incentive for governments to legally recognize Bitcoin as proper money. No one is sure when or if this will happen, but it's something to think about as Bitcoin continues to experience a lot of growth around the world. Weaknesses. Next, let's take a look at some of the weaknesses of Bitcoin. There's a good chance a lot of these problems are going to be solved going forward, but for now they're weaknesses. Government interference While this hasn't happened a lot - yet - there are many signs pointing to governments around the world interfering with the growth of Bitcoin. Whether it's stopping bitcoins from being transferred to bank accounts or something else, one of the biggest weaknesses of Bitcoin currently is the chance of even more government interference as the virtual currency becomes more popular around the world. This is also a good thing on some levels, however. For example, no one wants money laundering or other illegal activities to be condoned or made possible due to Bitcoin. So, in some ways, the fact that governments are starting to get involved is a good thing that will help Bitcoin grow even more in the years ahead. No Monetary Sovereignty. Another weakness of Bitcoin is that it has no monetary sovereignty. Basically, this means that Bitcoin is not yet accepted as "real money" around the world. Bitcoin is not backed by any government currently. Some may consider this a strength, but it also poses some problems for people (especially corporations) that want to make money with Bitcoin. Bitcoin is, at its core, another fiat currency that isn't backed by precious metals or other items of value. The exact value of a single BTC is that which is . . .

For any answers to questions Contact Clyde Thorburn Here. Author : Bitcoins Basics 101 PDF Ebook by DAVID DODGE and BRIAN DIXON Other virtual currencies offer these to an extent, but Bitcoin was the first to use a peer-to-peer network instead of a central authority in control of the currency. When you add in advanced encryption and anonymity, it's easy to see why Bitcoin is growing so quickly all over the world - and will likely continue to experience growth for the next decade at least. As forced cutbacks and problems with existing financial systems occur around the world - like in Greece, for example, with austerity measures put in place - Bitcoin is going to become more useful for billions of people. Because Bitcoin is not tied to the current financial institutions - like banks and governments - the people are more likely to latch onto it and use it because of their hatred for what's been done to the world economy. At the same time, if Bitcoin is to continue growing, it's going to have to come to terms with governments and financial institutions around the world. Because if not many people accept Bitcoin as a form of currency, it's still necessary to transfer bitcoins to your currency of choice before you can use it. This is why it's going to be necessary for Bitcoin to "grow up" eventually and learn to interact with current financial systems a little better. As this happens, Bitcoin is going to become even more popular around the world and experience a huge growth spurt. In the far future, some fiat currencies may suffer from inflation and be dropped entirely as people begin to use Bitcoin instead. This may be decades away, but there are signs pointing to this happening. Banks are already collapsing around the world, but now people have an alternative - Bitcoin. It's going to be . . .

Author : Bitcoins Basics 101 PDF Ebook by DAVID DODGE and BRIAN DIXON For example, with Bitcoin it's much easier to make international payments without risk of credit card fraud - something that's becoming more and more of a problem these days. Quite a few countries don't even accept credit card payments for one reason or another, which isolates quite a few societies around the planet. That isn't good in the grand scheme of things, which is why Bitcoin is being heralded as a lifesaver for some. Another way that Bitcoin may spread quickly in the future is as a means for international workers to send money back to their families without huge transaction fees. Companies like Western Union (and even PayPal) may find that they no longer have enough business to keep operating if Bitcoin really takes off and people begin using it to send money to their families in another country. Why should the people give large corporations billions of dollars per year in transaction fees when Bitcoin can do the same for free? This is actually one of the reasons that Bitcoin may have problems in the future as it grows. Large banks and other companies are likely to cry foul as they lose billions in revenue to Bitcoin. And if they do start to complain, there's a good chance that governments and regulatory agencies are going to take notice and try to appease them by shutting down Bitcoin or at . . .

Author : Bitcoins Basics 101 PDF Ebook by DAVID DODGE and BRIAN DIXON For example, as mentioned, as more people snatch up bitcoins, the higher their value rises. That is, with more demand, the price will go up. Beyond that, it's going to be interesting to see younger generations begin to study the Bitcoin markets to come up with different ways to look at financial activity. Bitcoin Deflation And Economic Activity. While the future of Bitcoin does indeed look bright, there are some economists who are thinking ahead and say that the cryptocurrency may have a problem in the future due to deflation. The amount of bitcoins that will be produced is fixed at 21 million. This supply of BTC will be used to buy more and more goods and services while it could end up in deflation on a major scale. For example, say you come up with a product or service that costs you 1 BTC to produce. You hope to sell it for 2.5 BTC to make a hefty profit. You go to work setting things up, but when you launch to market, your product or service is only worth .5 BTC due to deflation that has happened while you were producing your product or setting up your service to sell online - and this could be a major stumbling block. As this happens, people are going to be more apt to hold onto their bitcoins because they will become more valuable. However, if no one is using their bitcoins for transactions, the . . .
