Taxes, interest rates and inflation

1.     Read through the following information and complete the activities that
       follow:




A.     Tax

       Tax is unavoidable. Income tax is the contribution which most of society
       makes towards covering the costs of certain services rendered by the state.
       Therefore taxpayers should not avoid or evade paying tax. Examples of
       services which benefit society are its police, defence force and road
       construction and maintenance.

I.     Tax avoidance
       When a taxpayer legally reduces his tax liability e.g. retirement annuities and
       trust funds.

II.    Tax evasion
       When a tax payer illegally reduces his tax liability e.g. by not declaring his full
       income.

III.   Direct and Indirect Taxes
       Direct Tax – examples are income and property tax.
       Indirect Tax – This is the tax levied on consumer goods. Examples are VAT
       (value added tax); excise duty (tax on cigarettes and alcohol); and import tax
       (on imported goods).

       Income Tax – who pays taxes?
(i)    Every individual who receives a taxable income (in excess of a specific
       amount) is liable to pay income tax. The Minister of Finance decides on these
       tax thresholds. The tax year begins 1 March and ends the last day of February
       each year.
(ii)   Every individual who receives interest and foreign dividends in excess of a
       specific amount, is liable to pay income tax.

IV.    Income Tax Systems

(i)    PAYE (Pay As You Earn)
       PAYE is the tax deducted from the salary or wage of an employee. The
       employer pays this amount to the Receiver of Revenue (SARS). Part-time
       workers are also liable for this tax.


                  Grade 12 Consumer Studies Learner’s Book Module 1 – 3
                                    Page 14 of 164
(ii)    Provisional tax
        This tax is levied when income is irregular. The employee pays an estimated
        amount of tax twice a year – at the end of August and February each year.

(iii)   SITE (Standard Income Tax on Employees)
        This tax applies to those whose annual income does not exceed R60 000 and
        who do not have allowances.
        The employer calculates the SITE after the following deductions:
•       Pension Fund contribution
•       Retirement Annuity Fund contribution
•       Medical Aid contributions (from a registered medical scheme)
        Then the employer issues the employee with a tax certificate (IRP 5
        Certificate) as proof of payment of SITE or PAYE on his/her behalf. The IRP
        5 form must be submitted with the income tax return from SARS.

(iv)    VAT (Valued added Tax)
        This tax is levied on goods and services at the time of sale. The consumer pays
        the seller/service provider who must return the VAT money collected from
        consumers to SARS. Currently South Africa’s VAT is 14%. Some items are
        exempted from VAT and some are zero-rated VAT items.

(a)     Exempted Items
        There are goods or services on which VAT is not charged e.g. Financial
        services, Transportation (road and rail), state-owned educational services.

(b)     Zero – rated items
        There are goods and services which are taxed at a 0% rate e.g. brown bread;
        maize products and rice; milk and milk products; eggs; fruit and vegetables;
        vegetable oil; petrol.

B.      Interest rates
        Interest is what you pay when you borrow money or buy on credit. Interest can
        be seen as a cost or expense in the case of money loaned, or as negative
        interest. It can be seen as an income when money is loaned to others at a cost.
        (Positive interest).

       Simple Interest           Daily interest         Compound Interest
Calculated on original amount    Calculated on daily Calculated on original
and paid at end of investment    balances, e.g. current amount and interest earned
period, e.g. Investment of       accounts               combined:      Interest  is
R20 000 for 1 year at 10% p.a                           calculated on interest.
= R20 000 + (R20 000 x 10%)
= R20 000 + R2 000 = R22
000

                                    Page 15 of 164
C.    Hire Purchase/instalment sale agreements
      The consumer receives financing for purchasing goods such as furniture or
      vehicles from a banking institution over a period of between 3 and 54 months.
      A deposit is required and the purchaser takes immediate possession of the
      goods, although the seller retains ownership rights until full and final payment
      has been made. The longer the term, the more interest is incurred. It is
      important to know whether interest is fixed or varying. If it is varying, the
      interest rate should be linked to the prime lending rate.

D.    How to avoid paying interest
      Buy cash or Lay-bye on 6 months interest-free options.
      If you use your overdraft facility or credit card; or if you purchase your goods
      on hire purchase agreements, or borrowing money you will have to pay high
      interest rates.
      If the above cannot be avoided, make a larger than expected down payment or
      pay off more than you are expected to each month. Do not skip payments.


2.    Work in pairs and plan a 3 day menu for a family including only zero-rated tax
      food items. This must be a vegetarian style menu. The menu may consist only
      of the following: brown bread, maize, maize products, rice, milk products and
      eggs, fruit and vegetables and vegetable oil.

3.    Your teacher will discuss simple, daily and compound interest rates with you
      further; thereafter you must calculate the questions in your workbooks. Look
      at these two advertisements and analyse them.
3.1   Find at least two things that are misleading in these advertisements.




                Grade 12 Consumer Studies Learner’s Book Module 1 – 3
                                  Page 16 of 164
3.2    Calculate how much you actually save on each item if you pay cash for them,
       as opposed to taking the 24 months option.
3.3    Which other credit options could be used to purchase these two items?
3.4    Choose the one you think is the most favourable credit option and explain
       why.
4.     Do the following calculations in your workbook, using simple interest: On 1
       January 2007, Sipho purchased household furniture to the value of R10 000.
       The interest of his credit agreement is 10% per annum on all overdue
       accounts. Calculate the amount Sipho has to pay on 31 December that same
       year.
5.     Read through the following information and complete the activities which
       follow:




E.     Inflation
       CPI inflation is inflation related to consumer goods. CORE inflation excludes
       food and energy prices. CPIX is used to measure inflation in South Africa.

       Inflation is a sustained increase in the average price of all goods and services
       produced in an economy during a certain period. The most widely reported
       measurement of inflation is the Consumer Price Index (CPI), whose function it
       is to compare prices (excluding food and energy prices) between certain
       periods.
       For example, about 25 years ago, R1 bought 2ℓ of milk. Calculate what
       percentage of 2ℓ it can buy today. Basically, inflation means a rise in prices.
       The cost of food and services continually increases, lowering the value of the
       rand so that it buys less than it did before.

I.     Causes of inflation
(i)    Long-term causes:
       When the money supply grows at a faster rate than goods and services can be
       produced/manufactured, inflation results.

(ii)   Short-term causes:
       The result of shocks to the economy (e.g. food and energy price shocks), that
       in turn, cause all other prices to escalate.

II.    Inflation cycle
       Consumers have an effect on the inflation and interest rates.
       Due to rising inflation the Reserve Bank increases the interest rates.

                                    Page 17 of 164
       Money is now expensive

                       .:
       Consumers borrow and buy less
                       &
       Then the Rand is strengthened.

III.   The National Credit Act no.34 of 2005
       The National Credit Act (NCA) is a new South African law that came into
       effect on 1 June 2007.

       The legislation provides greater consumer protection in all transactions where
       consumers apply for and/or are granted credit by any company/institution. The
       NCA applies only to new credit agreements entered into on or after 1 June
       2007. It does not include credit agreements with companies, close corporation
       and partnerships that have an asset value or annual turnover of over R1
       million/entities of this type that enter into agreements in excess of R250
       000/mortgages).

       If a consumer cannot meet their existing credit payments the NCA will assist
       the consumer by providing debt counselling with a state appointed debt
       counsellor. The state counsellor will analyse your financial situation and either
       reject your request (if he believes you can meet your current payments), or he
       will make a recommendation to the credit providers as to how you can
       realistically repay them. If accepted, this new arrangement will then be
       approved to borrow additional money until you have repaid your credit
       providers in full.

IV.    Complaints Process

       You have the right to resolve a complaint by way of alternate dispute
       resolution if you are not satisfied with the response you receive from the credit
       provider by filing your complaint with the National Credit Regulator or
       making an application to the National Consumer Tribunal.

       You should always contact the local branch of the credit provider first.
       However, you may also contact:

(a)    The National Credit Regulator on 0860 627 627 or visit the website at
       www.ncr.org.za
(b)    The Credit Information Ombudsman on 0861 662 837
(c)    The Banking Ombudsman on 0860 800 900 or visit the website at
       www.obssa.co.za

                      ‘If the credit furniture retailers want to survive, they are going
                      going to have to focus much more on selling desirable, well-
                      priced merchandise, and less on income from financial services.

                            -Shane Watkins, executive director of Peregrine Capital




                                         ARTICLE



The National Credit Act obliges banks, retailers and others who offer credit to
consumers to ensure that potential customers can afford to buy goods or services on
credit. The terms of the Act, the full cost of buying something on credit has been
revealed. This includes interest charged and other fees. For example, if an item is
advertised at a cash price of R4, 799, a retailer can no longer advertise ‘or only Rx per
month’, but must show that the actual total cost of the item (at 25% interest) is R6
640.

It is hoped that displaying the large difference between the cash and credit prices will
discourage consumers from buying unnecessary items on credit. The aim of the Act is
not to put a stop to credit. The aim of the Act is not to put a stop to credit – very few
people can afford to pay cash for arouse, for example – but to deter consumers from
buying items that they can’t afford.

Soon after the introduction of the National Credit Act on I June 2007, there were
substantial decreases in the sales of cars, property and retail goods. Sales were also

Lower as a result of the longer and more careful credit checking processes which
banks and retailers now have to follow. South Africa has recently experienced a
consumer boom. This has had positive effects in results of job creation as a result of
the increased demand for goods and services. The consumers’ boom also relied
heavily on credit, encouraging second levels of household debt. It also led it a n
increased demand for imported goods to the extent that South Africa was importing
more than it was exporting, exacerbating the trade deficit.

At the same time, however, increased demand has led it higher prices and a rise in the
inflation rate. In an attempt to curb inflation, the Reserve Bank raised interest rates.

Those retailers who are most affected by the new Act believed that sales will recover
once the new system is firmly in place. They should also benefit from reduced bad
debts as the consumers who have been granted credit in terms of the Act should be in
a position to pay them back.
                                                                 Business Times, 26 June 2007

5.1   As a class discuss what you think happens if consumers do not borrow and
      buy less, but continue to make use of credit options.

6.    Work in small groups and complete this assignment on hire purchases.
      Calculate, then compare your answers with other groups in the class. Do the
      following:

6.1   The Ndlovu family bought a vehicle on hire purchase agreement. The cost was
      R100 000. It had to be paid over a period of 4 years in equal monthly
      instalments. The fixed interest was charged at 18% p.a. They paid a 10%
      deposit. Calculate the monthly payments.
6.2   Building a house costs R200 000. How much would that same house cost to
      build a year later if the inflation rate were 9, 5% per annum.
6.3   R10 000 is invested for a period of 5 years compound interest. How much will
      the investment be worth at the end of 5 years?

7.    Discuss in small groups and write the following answers in your workbooks:
7.1   Why do you think it was necessary to introduce and implement the NCA?

INVESTIGATION

Taxes, interest rates and inflation
(12.1.2)

1.     Read through the information with the learners.

2.     Divide the learners into pairs and have them plan a 3-day menu for a family,
       including only zero-rated tax food items. This must be a vegetarian style
       menu. The menu may consist of the following only: brown bread, maize,
       maize products, rice, milk powders and eggs, fruit and vegetables and
       vegetable oil.

3.    Discuss positive and negative interest rates with learners. Allow the learners to
      compare simple, daily and compound interest rates and then complete the task
      in their workbooks.
3.1   On their own the learners compare simple and compound interest.
3.1.1 Save R200 and Save R1 000- misleading. Interest rate at 25% does not
      mention spacing whether it is simple/daily/compound interest.
3.1.2 Total payable R2 834,08 (24 months) Total payable R 9 631,42 (24 months)
                  R1 999,00                              R6 999,00
      Cash price            saved           Cash price               saved
                   R835,08                               R2 632,42

3.1.3 Credit card, access bond, overdraft
3.1.4 Access bond – least interest, if no access bond, credit card – interest slightly
      less than 25% (budget facility).

4.     The learners do the calculations on simple interest in their workbooks.
       Possible answer:
4.1    R10 000
       1%
       R10 000 + (R10 000 × 10%)
       = R10 000 + R1 000
       = R11 000

5.     Read through the information and the article with the learners.
5.1    Possible answer: Inflation rate rises.




                  Grade 12 Consumer Studies Teacher’s Book Module 1 – 3
                                      Page 10 of 102
6.    Learners work in groups and calculate 6.1 to 6.3
6.1   Possible answer:
      100 000
      10 000 – deposit of 10%
      90 000 + 12% (10 800) × 4 years
      90 000 + 43 200
      133 200 ÷ 48 months
      = 2 775 per month
      The Ndlou family’s monthly payments are R 2 775.

6.2   Possible answer
      R200 000 × 9, 5%
      = 200 000 + 19 000
      = R219 000
      The house would cost R 219 000 per annum.

6.3   1st year 10 000 × 10% (1 000) .: 11 000
      2nd year 11 000 × 10% (1 100) .: 12 100
      3rd year 12100 × 10% (1 210) .: 13 310
      4th year 13 310 × 10% (1 3310) .: 1 464,10
      5th year 14 641 × 10% (1 464,10)
      After 5 years it will be worth R16 105,10

7.    The learners work in groups and write answers in their workbooks.

7.1   Wild spending of consumers, a weak rand, lots of consumers in debt (buying
      on credit) and too easy to get credit. If NCA was not established to control
      credit services, then consumers in debt will be badly affected as they get
      deeper and deeper into debt. Those that are saving money will be advantaged.
      To encourage saving and discourage debt.
