​Comprehensive guide to capital gains tax (Issue 7)

Some amendments have been made to the Comprehensive Guide to Capital Gains Tax (Issue 7). Most of the changes were textual (for example, amending the table of Supreme and High Court Cases and amending the Table of amendments to CGT legislation to include provisions proposed to be amended by the Taxation Laws Amendment Bill, 2018). Commentary on the examination of the purpose of a receipt or accrual in determining its capital or revenue nature has been included in with reference to Volkswagen South Africa (Pty) Ltd v C: SARS [2018] 1 All SA 716 (SCA), 80 SATC 179; and a further reason has been added why section 25B is irrelevant in determining the CGT consequences of trusts and their beneficiaries in 14.11.1.
