We welcome you to our first Newsletter for 2016.
Our focus in this edition is the Budget Speech by our recently re-appointed Finance Minister, Mr. Pravin Gordhan, held on 24 February 2016.
The budget was one of the most important post-apartheid ones in view of a possible ratings downgrade by the international rating agencies. Mr Gordhan managed to gain time and Standard & Poors’ announced after the budget that they would not immediately change South Africa’s rating. Please find a summary of the key points of the Minister's speech further below.
We have also included information across the board regarding investments, insurance, immigration and other related topics.
