EFSA - Protecting your rights as an ecommerce business and expressing your needs to the relevant government departments and opinion formers

SA Distance Learning Organisations for Children are Zero-rated for Tax during the Lockdown

The SA Government has agreed to zero-rate educational sites for VAT over the lockdown period. The telecoms are responsible for applying this to relevant sites that they carry. So far (6 May) 471 sites are registered. EFSA is seeking clarity if these sites can cover courses for professions or adult training.

Meanwhile, the web browser developer Opera has partnered with non-profit-organisation Worldreader to offer young South Africans free e-books during the nationwide lockdown via the Opera Mini browser. Worldreader is offering a new selection of e-books to Opera Mini users as well as a new mobile Web app designed to offer reading material tailored specifically for young adult readers. Worldreader is a global NPO that provides people in the developing world with free access to a library of digital books via e-readers and mobile phones. (ITWeb)
