Individual Forex Solutions

An SDA is the limit set by the South African Reserve Bank on overseas payments and investments. It allows South African residents to make up to R1 million worth of overseas payments and investments per calendar year. Your SDA allowance is available to use for offshore transfers/payments as you please as long as supporting documents are provided.

If you wish to transfer or invest money over and above your SDA, you will need to use your FIA. This allows you to transfer up to R10 million extra abroad during a calendar year. To make use of this allowance, you must comply with the following requirements:

• Obtain a “Tax Clearance Certificate – Foreign Investment Allowance” (TCC) issued by SARS.

• Be in good tax standing and be 18 years and older.

• Acquire a tax compliance status (TCS) letter that contains your tax number and PIN#FD0E35

As part of our offering for individual’s using their Foreign Investment Allowance to send money offshore, we process the tax clearance application on your behalf though one of our partners. The service is free of charge and the process is done online.
