A concise commentary on Namibian tax and vat acts and includes extracts of relevant legislation.

Concise Guide to Tax in Namibia is the country's first comprehensive and practical guide to the complex field of tax law and practice. It provides a detailed explanation of Namibian income tax and VAT, as well as an outline on stamp duties and the transfer duty system. It enables you to accurately calculate the taxes you or your company have to pay, ensure you claim all allowances and rebates, discover which income is tax-free and what expenses are deductible. Extracts from the Acts are kept to a minimum but cross-referenced in footnotes for those who wish to locate the actual provisions in the legislation.
