Join Us as we unpack the provisions of the new Carbon Tax Bill

The Carbon Tax Bill which has been debated for the past 8 years has finally been signed into law and has been effective since 01 June 2019.

The Bill imposes a liability on the greenhouse gases emitted during the production of goods and services. The nominal tax rate is R120 per tonne of carbon emitted, although with the various tax-free allowances the rate could drop to between R6 and R48 per tonne.

Allowances included are:

  • a basic tax-free allowance of 60 percent for all activities,
  • a 10 percent process and fugitive emissions allowance
  • a maximum 10 percent allowance for companies using carbon offsets to reduce their tax liability
  • a performance allowance of up to five percent for companies reducing the emissions intensity of their activities
