Why Optomise?

Many taxpayers are reluctant to enter into Section 12J transactions as they are uncertain how the South African Revenue Service (SARS) will view, and ultimately tax, the income derived from these transactions. Optomise has obtained unique private binding rulings relating to S12J investment compliance. These rulings have provided us with clarity, consistency and certainty about the interpretation and application of the relevant tax laws.

Optomise is a specialist VCC that has the expertise to structure transactions in line with regulatory requirements

We provide a full compliance service to investors and ensure a seamless investment process into S12J compliant investee companies.

Our fund is licensed by the Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) and we utilise an FSB-approved compliance officer.
