On 27 February 2015, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) of South Africa adopted Notice 134 announcing the approval of an application made by PPC Ltd for the 12I Tax Allowance Programme. As a result, the investment allowance granted to the local cement manufacturer which is deductible from taxable income is ZAR 350 million (USD 29.9 million), and the training allowance is circa ZAR 8.9 million (USD 761,000).

The DTI has stated that from the company's total investments estimated at ZAR 1,408 million (USD 120 million), the manufacturing qualifying assets accounted for ZAR 1,073 million (USD 91.8 million). Due to the specific characteristics of the project, the DTI classified this investment as a Brownfield project.

The purpose of the investment is to manufacture cement.

 
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.
