In this survey of the taxation of copyright royalties reference is made throughout to the Income Tax Act 58 of 1962, as applicable to the tax year 1981/82. Only the most relevant sections of the Act are discussed; others, such as s 30 which refers to persons whose business extends beyond the borders of the Republic (as defined in s 1), are not taken into account for practical reasons although they may possibly affect a particular taxpayer. The following three aspects of the taxation of copyright royalties are discussed separately: (i) the taxation of such royalties in the hands of the recipient thereof; (ii) the provisions which refer to the payer of copyright royalties; (iii) the influence of double taxation agreements.
