SolarSwop offers investment in the renewable energy market through the Section 12J Investment Venture Capital Company – SS12J Capital. This is open to South African citizens only. Personal Investors receive from 28% – 45% of the Capital amount invested as a Tax Deduction from their Personal Tax, or 45 % tax deduction for a Trust. Corporates receive a 28% Deduction.
Treasury is incentivising South African taxpayers to invest in the local economy, via a tax deduction on the investment amount provided the investment is made into an approved Section 12J Venture Capital Company, like SS12J Capital. The Investor benefits from both the return on investment on the full invested amount and the tax deduction.
