  1. The first case of #coronavirus has been confirmed in South Africa. https://www.businesslive.co.za/bd/national/health/2020-03-05-sa-confirms-first-coronavirus-case/
  2. I have been neglecting my TFSA (it's like my money is just not going as far anymore) in 2017/18 it was easy to put away the monthly contributions, but 2019/2020 expenses just piled up.
  3. @SaurusDNA this is also a really nice website that tracks the corona virus (covid-19) in real time. What I like about it is there is only one 'pin' in the country and that contains all the info. In other words generally really a clean layout. https://infographics.channelnewsasia.com/covid-19/map.html
  4. Was literally just thinking of creating a thread on this as this seems to be real now.
  5. This is probably the most pro-business ANC budget I have ever seen.
  6. Time for that RA question again. I see Justonelap pushing the OUTvest one, currently set on 10x because that was said to be the best one, now I am all confused again. Additional reading for new members:
  7. In simple terms, it's a forum where people can ask financial questions and others do their best to answer them for you.
  8. Eskom announced stage 2 loadshedding today (December 6) until tomorrow. Fun.
  9. Was thinking, it can show you the exact amount you need to pay this month and it allows you to "mark" that the payment have been made. Some way to just manage the process.
  10. Here is the Black Friday deals for HiFi corp - very good TV specials https://www.hificorp.co.za/black-friday-2019-sales-catalogue?utm_source=PlatinumWealth&utm_medium=article&utm_campaign=BlackFriday2019

  12. Welcome to the forum @Njabulo Nsibande been following your articles on Justonelap.com for quite some time. I like this challenge, @Bandit @Groovy what do you guys think of trying to do this next year?
  13. Wow... Microsoft added #bitcoin payments to their business. Source: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13942/microsoft-account-how-to-use-bitcoin-to-add-money-to-your-account #Microsoft
  14. Blue Label is falling out of the MSCI small cap index today so I suspect it will have some kind of impact on the share price.
  15. I'm looking for either the Samsung A70 or the Samsung S10e. If any of you see one of those two phones on special please send me a PM or ping me here in the thread. My Samsung S6 is now long in the tooth and what better time to replace it than on Black Friday.
  16. The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has launched the pilot phase of a new business website which aims to significantly improve the ease of doing business in South Africa. https://bizportal.gov.za In a statement on Monday (4 November), Trade and Industry minister Ebrahim Patel said that the Biz Portal means that an entrepreneur will be able to register a business within a day in South Africa, a dramatic improvement on turnaround times of 40 days recorded by the World Bank 2020 Ease of Doing Business Report. The current price for registering a company through the portal is R175. However, Patel said that the Biz Portal was not limited to just registration, and that South Africans will also be able to access several business-related services to help in starting their company. This was done through a collaboration with the South African Revenue Services (SARS), the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) and the Compensation Fund (CF), he said. Patel said that this collaboration means that users will be able to access the following features through the portal: Company registration; Tax registration number; Domain name registration; B-BBEE Certificate; Compensation Fund registration; Unemployment Insurance Fund registration; Business bank account. Currently four major banks are participating on the platform and customers will be able to make a direct payment in relation to the registration services at the end of the transaction, be routed into a safe banking platform to apply for a business account or opt for their personal details to be passed on to a bank of their choice.
  17. Live Stream The medium-term budget, delivered four months before the main budget in February, outlines government's spending plans over the next three years, and includes projections for the rate of economic growth and the status of public finances. Ministers also use it as an indicator of what can be expected in the main Budget. It does not generally include announcements on new taxes, and none were announced on Wednesday. Mboweni's medium-term budget in a nutshell
  18. I just saw this article about Google planning to acquire Fitbit. The link to the full article
  19. Took me awhile, but finally figured out how to pull a statement from the app. I setup dropbox on my phone and then created a folder called "Discovery Bank Statements" and via the app I navigate to "documents" and then I export the statements to dropbox and then access them on the PC. One thing I think they did very well is the ability to download "certified" statements. I'm impressed.
  20. I see Long 4 Life took a 12.5% stake in Spur. Brian Joffe’s acquisitive investment group Long4Life, which, in May, said it had a cash pile of R1.1bn for buying opportunities, has more than tripled its stake in Spur Corporation to 12.5%. The transaction, which is worth about R220m, takes Long4Life’s interest in Spur, which owns Hussar Grill and RocoMamas, from 4% to 12.5%.
