South African expats: you can fly home next Christmas

December 13, 2016

It’s Festive Season again. For most of us this means getting together with friends and family, enjoying good food and wine and talking about the good old days.

But of course, if you’re far from home, the festive season may also make you feel gloomy and depressed as you long for your nearest and dearest. So we want to tell you to hang in there, and also – we’ve got a gift for you…

Time for a family reunion 2017 promotion

It is, of course, too late for us to reunite you with your loved ones this year. But we’ve got your back for 2017. We’re offering two return flights to-or-from any destination in the world in 2017 to the value of R50 000!

That’s right. This means you can either bring gran and gramps over to your side of “town” to visit you in your new home… OR… you can jet off back to South Africa for a lekker holiday in the sun with your beloveds.

How to enter the competition

Of course, it goes without saying that we have some fine print. But not to worry, we won’t make you jump through hoops. All you need to do to enter is make use of services to move your money to your new home. As simple as that.

You will receive one entry for ANY offer of service accepted from To whether you simply need us to sort out your South African taxes (such a hazardous endeavour when you’re sitting halfway across the world), want to exchange your rands for foreign currency or want to transfer the proceeds of your pension or retirement annuity offshore – we can do it all.

Won’t I lose out if I transfer my money abroad?

It’s natural to feel a bit apprehensive about encashing your hard-earned savings. After all – we are told to leave our retirement savings alone, to leave our investments where they are and, advised by some of our friends to have as little possible interaction with SARS.

But this advice is not always sound. South Africans living abroad can stand to benefit greatly from moving their money across borders and getting their taxes up to date. Some of the benefits include:

  • Getting tax refunds and relief on double taxation in two different countries
  • Getting tax refunds for periods worked abroad
  • Financial incentives for reinvesting retirement savings in certain countries (such as the UK).
  • Earning higher interest in a stronger currency when reinvesting funds in local investment schemes.
  • Freedom from further taxation in South Africa when opting for financial emigration
  • Mandate to transfer the proceeds of a South African inheritance or trust abroad should you have emigrated financially before the date of the testator’s death.
  • Authorisation to encash your pension, provident, preservation and/or retirement annuity before retirement age.
  • Receiving your retirement savings tax-free should you choose to return to South Africa on retirement.
  • Access to’s affiliate banking partners which will allow you to open and close bank accounts in certain jurisdictions even before emigration.
  • Access to’s network of affiliate financial services providers for sound advice on international financial planning, property investment, credit, retirement and tax planning in your new home.
  • Freedom to use your money for whichever purpose your heart desires.
  • Competitive exchange rates.
  • Facilitated remote services – which means we can do all the legwork for you in South Africa and you just need to sit back and relax while everything’s taken care of.
