South Africa is one country where TC should be booming. We still have a growing economy and TC can ensure decent accounting standards are adhered to by businesses.

Both business owners and the IRS should be encouraging TC use.

I think we should be fighting to lift the VAT threshhold.

I propose a vat free zone up to R 10 Million per year. Everyone over that pays 30% VAT adn everyone under that is Vat Free. This gives a 30% margin to the smaller businesses.

What better, simpler  way to stimulate SME growth.

Linus it should be simple just to help your friend. No fear - just do it. If you do need help consultants earn their living doing this. My recomendation - upgrade her to the latest free version. She is likely using 15 year old software.

Her computer itself is ancient and she cannot afford a new one. She is in her seventies but still run a small business.  I will see when I get there, what can be done.

This is another instance where a Linux-based TC would have saved the day.

... and then they want to take the land back without compensation? The idea is preposterous.
Land only has value if you can keep another African off it. Land only has value if you have complete tenure, right down to the freedom to dispose of the asset.
Naive attempts to directly tax the ownership of Land…
