A regular listener of The Money Show called in with the following question:
"My 60-year-old mother recently sold a property for R1.2 million.
She is deregistered for tax and doesn’t owe the bank any money.
She recently bought a Land Rover for which she still owes about R700 000.
She wants to add the money to her retirement savings, but doesn’t know where to put it in order to get the best growth.
Should she pay off the Land Rover or invest it and, if so, where is best place considering her age and the tax implications?"
