By using a Tax Free Savings Account (launched on 1 March 2015) you can save and invest in a variety of vehicles without ever having to pay a cent in taxes on any returns within these accounts.

No Capital Gains Tax, no Dividends Tax and no Income Tax from interest earned…

We interviewed Niel Fourie, Public Policy Actuary at the Actuarial Society of South Africa, about how to get the very most from a Tax Free Savings Account.

We also took a call from Stuart Theobald, MD and Analyst of Intellidex, whose company created a Tax Free Savings Account investment calculator.
