When selling one's primary residence, am I correct to assume that closing out of the bond is included in costs of selling the asset when it comes to CGT payments? Does this fall under costs of selling the asset?
I am the director of a company, whose tax was done by a tax practitioner, with the company on their SARS eFiling profile, I did not have shared access. The company's tax has since been transferred to a new tax practitioner for various reasons.

I recently registered a business. I however still run an online ecommerce site where the proceeds go to my personal account by way of EFTs, Cash, SnapScan and PayFast. I also pay vendors from my personal account. Can the net profit simply be transferred to the business account for tax purposes or do I need to re-register all of the above services with the company details. The ultimate goal is of course to avoid having a large income tax from both a salary and this 'sideline' ecommerce store.

However, there are a number of issues that I cannot get to grips with regarding the storage of BTC in a wallet and the further use of BTC outside the fiat system:
1) If I moved my BTC to a wallet provider outside of SA (blockchain, based in Luxembourg but servicing globally) does SARS see this as an offshore transaction? as: a) The wallet provider is not a registered global institution as such. b) No interest is accumulated to this wallet / amount, so no income is generated. ...

I sold a property during the 2015 year of assessment and made a significant capital gain. I also claimed an assessed loss deduction on the same property for rental losses (finance charges, levies etc) against my other income up to the date the property was sold. SARS ring fenced this loss as my total taxable income falls in the highest tax bracket. However this is only as a result of the significant capital gain I made on the same property I claimed the loss on. Is there a provision in the act t...
