Programme Synopsis

Is severance payment taxable income or non-taxable retrenchment benefit? How the tax treatment of severance payment is mostly a question of fact, can be drastically altered based on its characterisation.

This session discusses the characteristic of the employment income. A detailed discussion of the taxation of individuals is beyond the scope of this session

The High Court has recently published a judgement related to section 10, and it is timely to be exploring this topic. This session is a mix of practical experience and academic knowledge.

  3. Basic tax concepts relevant to an individual
  4. Capital versus revenue receipts of an individual
