Personal taxation evolves with the Income Tax Act and related procedure. Employment thus comes with tax planning potential. Understanding what allowances and receipts are liable or exempt from tax, or how expenses may be managed so that they are deductible from Gross Remuneration.
Without a doubt, providing an efficient remuneration package is critical in attracting and maintaining an effective workforce. Ensuring it is both tax efficient to the organization as well as to the employee is crucial. Attendees will learn practical approaches to ensuring maximum tax deductions are obtained by the organization, while the employee is not overly taxed as his remuneration increases.
This program looks at how to maximize tax exempt allowances and benefits, as well as obtaining maximum relief provided by the Income Tax Act. Case studies will be discussed.
This program would also discuss special reliefs introduced due to COVID 19 and latest budget 2021 issues.
