If you are a sole proprietor, then you own the business and the business is JUST on your name. You can't let somebody else have 5%.

If his brother in law do have 5%, then it is a partnership.

Please explain a bit more. Smile

Joe is an interesting person who does not play by the rules. He is the sole owner of his business, but he has an informal agreement with his brother-in-law to lease the premises, but instead of paying a fixed rate Joe instead pays his brother 5% of the Net profit for that month, that way Joe feels he is covered if there is a bad month and wont then miss a payment creating family issues with his Brother-in-law, his Brother-in-law is a wealthy man with plenty of land and agreed to the 5% out of principle because Joe refused his offer to use the premises free of charge.

Joe's wife will inherit all the money in his bank account and the physical stuff in the house and storage that he owns.

His children will each inherit one bitcoin.

His investment money will be handed over to his wife to manage, but when the children turn 21 they are each entitled to 20% of the funds and his wife 40%

^Is that possible?

Mark is 15

Who does that go to?

From this https://www.sygnia.co.za/docs/default-so...f?sfvrsn=6

Quote:DEATH BENEFITS
In the event of your death prior to retirement, the value of your investments in the Sygnia Retirement Annuity Fund will be distributed to your dependants
and/or nominated beneficiaries. Please note that dependants take precedence over nominated beneficiaries in terms of law. If no dependants are found
and no beneficiaries were nominated, the death benefit will be paid to the deceased member’s estate as a lump sum. The value is determined on the date
of the liquidation of your investments. The dependants and/or nominated beneficiaries may elect to receive the benefit as an annuity, as a lump sum or as
a combination of a lump sum and an annuity. Annuity payments will be taxed as income in the hands of the dependants and/or nominated beneficiaries at
their marginal tax rates. Lump sum payments will be subject to the relevant retirement tax tables applicable to retirement fund lump sums.

Joe nominates that this goes to his current wife.
