    CC Member's Loan account

    What accounting entries should be made to reduce a CC member's loan account to zero, in the most tax-efficient manner? The CC has made loans totalling R200 000 to the sole member. The CC has no interest in getting repayment of the loan. It can write off the loan claim, or it can accept a notional loan from the member in the same amount and do a set off, or it can declare a dividend in favour of the member, whatever might be required to expunge the loan.

    I'm not so sure you can just write-off a loan like that or else we'd all be evading tax with that loophole.

    Quite correct, and in terms of the new dividend tax provisions, it will be deemed a dividend so you might just as well preempt it and do so. Their are no write off options.

    Keep in mind that STC is 10% up to end of business today. If you delcare the dividend after this the STC payable will be 15%.
