Total Tax Contribution 2010

This is the fourth of PwC South Africa’s annual Total Tax Contribution survey. The findings of this survey reinforce the message of how the South African tax system operates and impacts on businesses.

We believe that companies create a significant amount of value for the economy in the form of taxes. The results of this survey illustrate the importance of large companies to the economic health of the country. The opportunity for a meaningful debate on South Africa’s tax system, whether that debate is to encourage efficiency or to influence the direction of its policy, depends on studies such as the Total Tax Contribution survey, which considers the overall impact of the system in its current form.

Topics covered in this survey:

  • Purpose and outline of the study
  • Total Tax Contribution of large South African companies
  • Taxes borne and taxes collected
  • Key measures
