Hi Everyone,

Looking to move to SA and looking for tax avoidance (not evasion) ideas. Im looking at trying to play the system so I can save a few quid and start a new life in SA and the extra money will come in handy.

We hope to start a new business out there and have experience of starting companies in the UK but not in SA, but I can`t see this being a problem if it is tax efficient.

I know I can buy a car VAT free as long as we move within 12 months of purchase.

Can anybody else offer advise... I know you can claim some VAT back at the airport?

My wife is SA born and obviousily holds a passport, myself is UK and currently doesn`t have an SA passport.

Any help appreciated
