I see that SARS will soon be collecting VAT on digital goods which are imported into RSA from April, which they have been speaking about for a while. This is the article that I happened to be reading about it, http://businesstech.co.za/news/gener...ming-in-april/
That means that any offshore services such as web hosting, or digital goods such as eBooks, are going to be subject to 14% VAT.
What I am wondering is how exactly this is going to be implemented. How will SARS collect VAT from the various offshore service providers? Or are the purchasers of goods going to be somehow liable to mange this process? Anyone have any ideas about the practical implications that this might have?
