Your tax accountant in your newly adopted country was horrified to learn about the house/ property owned by your South African trust? It gets even more complicated if the property is registered in a close corporation (CC)/ company which is owned by that trust.

Have you been stung by the not-so-friendly double tax agreements, which allow you to be taxed on the rental income in two countries but denies you any tax credit?

I really enjoyed the list “100 things to do before you emigrate” from this website, and found it very useful as a check-list to make sure we had everything covered before and during the move.

I'm sure that South Africa has a few deadly spiders, but I can't say I've ever seen one of them.
