A secret torment for some, a proud responsibility for others, ‘black tax’ is a daily reality for thousands of black South Africans. In this thought-provoking and moving anthology, a provocative range of voices share their deeply personal stories.
With the majority of black South Africans still living in poverty today, many black middle-class households are connected to working-class or jobless homes. Some believe supporting family members is an undeniable part of African culture and question whether it should even be labelled as a kind of tax. Others point to the financial pressure it places on black students and professionals, who, as a consequence, struggle to build their own wealth. Many feel they are taking over what is essentially a government responsibility. The contributions also investigate the historical roots of black tax, the concept of the black family and the black middle class.
In giving voice to so many different perspectives, Black Tax hopes to start a dialogue on this widespread social phenomenon.
General Principles of Commercial Law is a concise compendium written specifically for non-law students. Written by experienced commercial law lecturers in the Department of Mercantile Law at the University of South Africa, it has been a prescribed text for undergraduate non-law students at various South African tertiary institutions for the past 28 years.
General Principles of Commercial Law provides students with a succinct exposition of the general principles of commercial law. It covers a wide range of topics influenced by the registration requirements of the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors.

The objective of the authors and publishers of the book is to provide a book that simplifies the understanding and application of tax legislation in a South African context for both students and general practitioners.
This edition is up to date with the amendments that were issued in Bill format or that were promulgated during 2019. As far as income tax is concerned, most of the amendments apply to the 2020 year of assessment, that is, years of assessment ending on 28 February 2020 for persons other than companies, and financial years ending during the period of 12 months ending on 31 March 2020 for companies.
In this edition students are assisted in preparing for the qualifying examination of chartered accountants. All the discussions in the book that fall outside the 2021 syllabus of the Initial Test of Competence (ITC) are shaded in the headings of the relevant paragraphs. Students preparing for the Tax Professional qualification should, however, still include the shaded sections in their preparation.

The basic purpose of the book remains the same: to provide a concise, yet fairly detailed, account of the law of insolvency, winding-up and judicial management. The book aims at a wide readership. For the subject specialist, it provides an update of developments in the law relating to insolvency and winding-up; for students, it is a text for both undergraduate and postgraduate study; and for insolvency practitioners, it may be used as a guide and a quick source of reference. The appendices contain specimen applications, specimen estate accounts, the Insolvency Act, relevant extracts from the Companies Act and the Close Corporations Act, and the Cross-Border Insolvency Act.
This now well established labour law text has been updated to reflect the law as of September 2017.
Labour Law Rules has provided a highly accessible text on labour, equity, social security and skills development laws over many years. It discusses these laws against a background of the country supporting the principle of ‘decent work,’ high unemployment, the insufficient creation of sustainable and decent jobs, and income inequality, all exacerbated by an increase in atypical work, skills shortages, as well as insufficient enforcement of laws.
Shaping markets through competition and economic regulation is at the heart of addressing the development challenges facing countries in southern Africa. The contributors to Competition Law And Economic Regulation: Addressing Market Power In Southern Africa critically assess the efficacy of the competition and economic regulation frameworks, including the impact of a number of the regional competition authorities in a range of sectors throughout southern Africa.
Featuring academics as well as practitioners in the field, the book addresses issues common to southern African countries, where markets are small and concentrated, with particularly high barriers to entry, and where the resources to enforce legislation against anti-competitive conduct are limited. What is needed, the contributors argue, is an understanding of competition and regional integration as part of an inclusive growth agenda for Africa. By examining competition and regulation in a single framework, and viewing this within the southern African experience, this volume adds new perspectives to the global competition literature.
It is an essential reference tool and will be of great interest to policymakers and regulators, as well as the rapidly growing ecosystem of legal practitioners and economists engaged in the field.

Companies and other Business Structures in South Africa, fourth edition, offers a clear and practical introduction to the law relating to companies, close corporations, business trusts, partnerships and financial markets.

In particular, the text succinctly analyses the complex body of case law developments within the spheres of corporate governance, insider trading and business rescue, and provides a chapter that addresses the winding up and deregistration of companies.
The text explains the law relating to corporate finance with an interdisciplinary (legal, accounting and management accounting) approach, and situates discussion of the recently promulgated Financial Markets Act 19 of 2012 within the context of insider trading and financial markets.
If you have an interest in law and politics, South Africa’s political economy and the processes of policy-making in a parliamentary context, this is an essential read.
The advancement of black South Africans in ownership and management in the private sector is growing steadily. This growth is aided by government scorecard that penalise corporations that fail to include black people in senior positions and management. Some claim that this process will lead to a more fair, less racially biased economy. But will this transform the basic structure of the economy to benefit the people as a whole? Changing The Colour Of Capital unpacks the fundamental character of the South African economy and examines the relationship between the political system and the economy.

Dismissal remains the most thorough and comprehensive work available on a problem that confronts employers, lawyers, judges and arbitrators every working day - when is it fair to terminate the relationship with employees, for whatever reason this regrettable step may be deemed necessary? This work deals with all the circumstances in which dismissals arise and are challenged - from dismissals for misconduct and incapacity, through retrenchments, automatically unfair dismissals, dismissals of protected and unprotected strikers, to the procedures required before such dismissals can lawfully be effected and challenged.

This third edition adds many judgments handed down since the second edition was published four years ago, and incorporates judgments law and statutory amendments that have been handed down or enacted since then. Dismissal forms a volume in a quartet by the author, and should where necessary be read with its companion volumes - Employment Rights, Collective Labour Law and Labour Litigation & Dispute Resolution.

South Africa's pioneer and foremost thinker and voice on Black Economic Advancement, Phinda Mzwakhe Madi, is back with a bang. His first book, Affirmative Action in Corporate South Africa, triggered the first wave of Affirmative Action programmes in the country. His follow up book, Black Economic Empowerment in the New South Africa, led to the formation of the BEE Commission and eventually the creation of the country's policy and codes of good practice. Now his third book in the trilogy, BEE 20 years later - The Baby and the Bathwater, evaluates progress so far and startles with its fresh perspective on the way forward.
Twenty years after the introduction of BEE, Madi’s view is that the time for follow-up and reflection has come. Clear trends and lessons can now be discerned and learned from. He contends that there is an unfortunate narrative that is gaining currency in South Africa generally and the corporate world in particular, as well as numerous sections of civil society, that BEE has been nothing but a smoke and mirrors initiative towards oligarchy, hence his chosen title: BEE 20 years later - The Baby and The Bathwater.
He believes that, having been the first black author to have written on this subject, he has a unique view of the evolution of the process. As a black entrepreneur himself and a director of various top listed companies with a total combined turnover of more than R90bn, he not only has a conceptual and academic understanding of the subject matter, but also has an insider’s view and experience.
As the title suggests, there is now a tendency to want to ‘throw the baby out with the bathwater’. His book argues that we need to make a very clear distinction between the bouncing baby and the (at times) dirty bathwater. The book analyses both the bouncing baby and the unfortunate dirt and grime that covers the bathwater. It makes a very frank, clinical and yet balanced argument on how this distinction needs to be made, as well as why and how we should all ensure that the baby both survives and thrives going forward, whilst getting rid of the ugly side of BEE - the dirty bathwater. But more importantly, he examines how to restore the credibility of this process so that it truly and genuinely moves away from just being seen as the enrichment of the few and lives true to its promise: the economic empowerment of the many.

Legal Principles of Contracts and Commercial Law (Eighth Edition aims at providing a detailed, yet simplified reference to the general principles of the Law of Contract and specific contracts, other commercial transactions and corporate law.
The purpose of this publication is to impact the current legal position, rather than to provide a critical and analytical approach to judgments and the view jurists.
This work is an introductory guide for students of labour relations and managerial studies. This edition retains explanations of the procedures and processes encountered in this field, including parties to an employment-relations system, individual and
McKenzie's law of building and engineering contracts and arbitration is an essential reference for those connected with the construction industry. It is the leading reference work dealing with South African contract law relating specifically to engineering and building contracts.
This is the first book to explain the law applicable to the updated Joint Building Contracts Committee (JBCC) Principle Building Agreement (6th edition, 2014) and the Engineering General Conditions of Contract for Construction Works (2nd edition, 2010), which are both annexed to the book and extensively cross-referenced to assist the reader. The book also cross-references the relevant clauses of the FIDIC Contract Agreement (1999). Disputes arising out of building contracts are often referred to arbitration for solution.
This work therefore deals with the effect of the Arbitration Act 42 of 1965 and the Association of Arbitrators Standard Procedure Rules, which are also reproduced as annexures in the book.
This updated book provides a comprehensive exposition of the theoretical foundations and general principles of the South African law of unlawful competition and the most important forms of competitive excess recognised in our law. In addition, because the legal rules regulating the maintenance and promotion of competition may influence the law of unlawful competition, these have also been reviewed.
