Corporate and Commercial Law
Navigating the legal framework inherent in doing business in a foreign country can be complex. We work closely with corporate and commercial law specialists who offer full-service general company and compliance services to clients. Our specialists offer bespoke services in litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution. We also provide strategic advice and legal solutions on a variety of commercial and corporate matters.
We tailor our comprehensive financial advisory services to assist foreigners in every aspect of their financial matters in South Africa.
Our expert team works with clients in structuring the most efficient financial plans. These include setting up a bank account that considers your specific Exchange Control Status, helping manage your offshore bank accounts while working or residing in South Africa, tax planning and general financial planning.
Our tax planning and consulting services ensure your tax affairs are optimally structured and fully compliant with South African law. Our team has a thorough understanding of international tax law, double tax agreements, South African tax law and the practices of South African Revenue Services (SARS). We thus offer expert assistance to individuals and organisations with the following:
- Tax residency and source-based tax planning
- Obtaining SARS rulings
- Scenario planning (including tax exemptions)
- Drafting expatriate-specific employment agreements
- Managing complex personal tax matters
Foreigners settling in South Africa also qualify for expatriate benefits, such as medical aid, retirement planning, and life and disability cover. This specialist field of financial planning requires a keen insight into the rules and regulations to take full advantage of the legal benefits.
We enjoy established relationships with the best providers in these respective fields. This allows us to give our clients the best advice and guidance in matters related to financial planning.
