Beyond the brown envelope
For over 150 years, it has been a principle of English law that if an agent takes a bribe or a secret commission, he is liable to account to his principal for the amount received.

View all recognition for Africa
In the African tax sphere, the trend remains for headline tax rates to continue to remain stable or decrease. Withholding tax rates have generally remained stable, although the experience of Dentons and our clients is that African tax authorities are requiring tax to be withheld from payments that have not previously been considered to be withholdable. We consider that taxation of the capital gains of non-residents is an obvious area for African governments to look to broaden their tax base, thus making it essential for investors to have the backup of a double tax treaty in the event of a change of law.
