With the global focus on climate change and environmental issues, it was probably inevitable that environmental taxes would become the new frontier to be explored by fiscal authorities. In South Africa, one of the earlier forays into this area was the introduction of the plastic bag levy in 2003 to reduce littering. The levy has produced small amounts of revenue each year, but environmental taxes are likely to feature much more significantly in the future.

I had just collected the Auris from Toyota Marketing and had stopped at a shopping centre for a cool drink when I noticed what could only be described as a statuesque young lady admiring the car. Approaching her I couldn't help but admire her physique and the trendy clothing she was nearly wearing. She glanced up at me before I could avert my stare and commented "very impressive."

There is something rather disquieting about drives from airports to a new destination.

In today's high-powered, fast-paced business arena, someone's 'say-so' simply doesn't suffice to seal a deal, especially if negotiations take place on a mobile phone. Yet sticking to the rules (such as waiting for written confirmation of a conversation or signing a formal contract before acting) can mean a lost opportunity.

Gordon Miller, the now Canadian-based CEO of Simmers, at a briefing to shareholders and journalists some years ago, expressed his desire for Simmers to become a major player in the gold mining sector. A "one million ounces per annum" goal was put forward as the expression of this desire.
