EBA entrepreneurs’ impressive growth during trying times

TSince the European Business Awards began, RSM International has sponsored the Entrepreneur of the Year Award, and we have always felt an affinity with the values it represents: innovation, tenacity and progress.

It bears repeating that these have been a difficult few years for European businesses and what impresses me most about this year’s nominees for the RSM Entrepreneur of the Year Award is the sheer scale of growth some of them have seen during these trying times.

For example, Gregory Trebol was a little known electric-bicycle designer and manufacturer only eight years ago.

VAT and valid tax invoices

Among the many legislated penalties that SARS apply to the various tax types, is the understatement penalty which is calculated in terms of the understatement penalty percentage table in Section 223 of the Tax Administration Act (TAA).
