Section 12I Tax Allowance Incentive
The 12I Tax Incentive seeks to promote Greenfield and Brownfield investments with the objective to boost the productivity of the South African manufacturing sector and increase the productivity of the human capital.
The minimum investment required in qualifying assets is ZAR 50 million for a greenfield project (projects that use only new and unused manufacturing assets) and an additional investment of ZAR 30 million for a brownfield project (expansions or upgrades of existing industrial complexes).
The total investment allowance range between 35% and 55% (or ZAR 350 million and ZAR 900 million) depending on the type of the investment, the status classification, and the localization.
