PRESS RELEASE: IMMEDIATE


We refer to the Davis Tax Committee's  'First interim report on macro analysis for the Minister of Finance'. Kindly find herewith SACTWU's  submission to this report.

We find the report to make inappropriate conclusions and limited and insufficient recommendations  regarding changes to the tax regime and tax mix. In our submission we identify what we believe are flaws in the report. We also examine and motivate for more appropriate changes to the tax system and tax mix.

This  is SACTWU's  third  submission  to the Davis  Tax Commission  (DTC).  Our two previous submissions include comments and recommendations on the form and content of South Africa's tax system and architecture (submitted in February 2014,  jointly with COSATU)   and  on  base   erosion   and  profit-shifting   (submitted   in  August  2015) respectively. This additional submission should be read in conjunction with our earlier submissions.

In completing this submission,  we have had to work at a breakneck  pace. Should we identify  any  omissions,   amendments   or  additions,   we  will  submit   these  to  the Committee, as a supplementary submission, by the end of next week.
