The Section 12J Opportunity
The South African Government has implemented a tax incentive for investments into Section 12J Venture Capital Companies (Section 12J VCCs), to encourage private investment in various sectors including hospitality.
Any South African taxpayer can deduct 100% of their investment from their taxable income, in the tax year in which the investment is made.
This could lead to a tax deduction of up to 45% (for individuals and trusts) and 28% for companies on the full amount invested into qualifying hospitality assets during the year of investment.
I am the Managing Director and Founder of Euphoric Wealth. We are a wealth diversification agency that offers private lenders interest-linked returns uncorrelated with the stock market in a legislatively protected environment secured by property. During 2017 our clients enjoyed returns of between 13,25% – 18% per annum across various lending products to Sectional Title Bodies Corporate.
After spotting a gap in the hospitality sector we launched Euphoric Memberships, a vacation club, with a unique financial model that includes an industry first no-levy option. Working closely with Jaltech and other hospitality service providers, we went on to launch Euphoric Capital which is a Section 12J Venture Capital Company (Section 12J VCC). Euphoric Capital allows South African taxpayers to acquire qualifying hospitality assets and benefit from the tax rebate associated with the Section 12J. This opportunity allows us to fulfil on a growing demand for leisure asset ownership, through a particular class of share associated with the VCC.
Prior to starting Euphoric Wealth, I worked as a business development consultant for a tech-start-up which took me to Fort Myers, Florida. Before this, I graduated from Rhodes University with Honours in Economics in 2010 and Honours in Information Systems in 2011.
I am skilled in Investments, Cryptocurrency Markets, Crowdfunding, Business Development and Strategy.
I am an actuary and Fellow of the Actuarial Society of South Africa after completing my degree (BSC Honours Actuarial Science) at the University of the Witwatersrand.
