South Africans are becoming used to hearing bad news in terms of our pockets on the 2nd Wednesday afternoon in February. Sadly, we don’t expect anything particularly different this year.
Given that South Africa, as a country, is still struggling financially and the gap between the earnings of the poorest and the “well-to-do do’s” does not seem to be shrinking, we can be confident that there will be more innovative taxes included in what is tabled.
There may be a lucky few in South Africa this December who receive a 13th cheque or bonus as part of your December pay.
It’s important that you understand what you are actually going to receive in your bank account:
• A bonus is generally an amount given to employees because of either their personal performance within the organisation, or because the organisation as a whole has done well;
• A 13th cheque will have been calculated as part of your annual company cost, and is a way of splitting an annual amount into 13 payments.

Over the past few days I have been struck by the number of times I have had young women say to me "my dad said I should take the chance/could do it/ must try". Each time these ladies have been faced with a challenge, and based on the courage given them by their fathers, they have stepped up to the plate. Successfully.
And I wonder if these dads recognise the incredible freedom that they have given their daughters?
Steve Jobs once said, “It’s not the tools you have faith in, tools are just tools. They work or they don’t work. It’s the people you have faith in or not.”
Firstly, it’s important to define how management at Accsys see the difference between a tool and a solution.
