June 26, 2015

There are no practise runs for life, no rehearsals, so when you have a dream that you want to follow there’s no time like the present. It’s why increasing numbers of people are moving abroad, and starting an exciting new life that allows them to make the most of their skills and talents.

Have you thought of joining the South African expat community? You wouldn’t be alone, but don’t let worries about your finances or tax obligations prevent you making what could be the best move you ever make. The team at FinGlobal are here to help you get off to the perfect start when you move abroad because we have a range of South African tax services. We’ll ensure that you’re happy and that the taxman is happy too.

The easy way to deal with SARS

How would you sum up dealing with the South African Revenue Service in one word? Easy? Fun? Quick? The chances are that you didn’t pick any of those options, but that’s just how it can be when you have the FinGlobal experts in your corner. We have a wealth of experience when it comes to dealing with the taxman for our expat customers, and that’s why we can make the process fast, fluid, and stress-free.

Let’s face it, the tax system can be daunting enough for people living in South Africa, so it can seem especially confusing for South Africans who are fulfilling their ambitions and moving to a new country. The last thing you want to do is to get on the wrong side of the tax authorities and find yourself with a hefty bill, but we’ll ensure that doesn’t happen. From obtaining tax clearance certificates to SARS de-registration, you’ll be amazed at how easy the process can be. When you don’t have to worry about your tax obligations, you’ll really be able to throw yourself into the new life you’ve embarked upon.

Staying a South African citizen

Being a South African citizen is something to be proud of. Our country has come further than any other in the last two decades, but there’s a whole world out there that deserves exploring. There are lots of valid reasons for thinking about moving abroad, from relocating a business or career, to moving nearer to family and friends, or simply to indulge your sense of adventure. The important thing to realise about becoming an expat is that you’ll still remain a citizen of South Africa, whatever continent your new home may be on.

Becoming a financial emigrant simply means that you’ll be registered as a non-resident citizen, so you’ll still have your South African passport, with all the advantages and birthrights, that carries. We’ll not only help you keep the taxman happy, we’ll show you how to use new legislation to move your savings and income to your new country as well.
