Airlifted from Mauritius

Airlifted from Mauritius

In April 2016, an expat family in Mauritius faced every parent’s worst nightmare when a bad headache soon proved to be a lot more sinister for their 10 year old daughter.

Jamie Copsey and his wife Olivia live on Mauritius with their children Patrick, Matilda (Tilly) and Ferguson.

Fast approaching tax deadline for South African expats

D-Day is looming for South African tax payers

Taxpayers in South Africa have less than a month to come clean and regularise any undisclosed or unauthorised foreign assets or income before the country’s Special Voluntary Disclosure Programme (SVDP) ends on 31 August.

The amnesty is scheduled to end just as the global transparency initiative, the Common Reporting Standard (CRS), is introduced.
