|Illicit Financial Flows: Curbing resource leakages|
Recent statistics indicate that South Africa has lost more than USD $100.7 billion over the period of 2002-2011. The SARS Commissioner has on numerous occasions expressed great concern about the risk SA faces regarding illicit financial flows; and the detrimental effect this has towards domestic resource mobilization. South Africa needs all available resources at its disposal in order to address the massive developmental challenges the country faces. Resource leakages like illicit financial flows have a significant negative effect on the countries capacity to meet its developmental objectives. It is clear that more information is required on this phenomenon; and more importantly, the need to explore ways to curb all forms of illicit financial flows is urgent.

|Submission on Mining to Davis Tax Committee|
South Africa is ranked amongst the top producers of mining extractives worldwide. According to Curtis (2009), South Africa "is the world’s largest producer of platinum group metals, chrome ore, manganese and vanadium and a major supplier of gold (world rank 2) coal (5), iron ore (9), nickel (5) and uranium (5)." However, over the years the mining industries’ contribution towards GDP has enormously decreased and this is partly attributed to the depletion of the mineral reserves.

|Illicit financial flows severely impact developing countries, not least South Africa|
Illicit financial flows are a massive problem impacting developing countries in general and in particular South Africa, and require urgent attention. This became clear during a roundtable meeting convened by three well-known international civil society organisations (CSOs) - African Monitor, Economic Justice Network and Oxfam - in South Africa during May. In a statement released Friday last week, the organisations noted that illicit financial flows also impacted developed countries and was such a huge and complex field that it would be best solved by a wide range of organisations working together to address the challenges caused by such flows.
In the case of South Africa, a Working Group was established during the roundtable to work with South African CSOs, the government and the private sector. The Working Group will ensure that there is purposeful cooperation to address the issue among South African CSOs. The group will liaise with other like-minded groups and task forces involved in addressing the issue.
|Submission on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) to the Davis Tax Committee|
Following the formation of the Davis Tax Committee, sub-committees were established to focus on specific tax-related issues, according to the terms of reference (attached). CSO’s are instrumental in policy processes and therefore, we have undertaken to tackle particular issues under the sub-committees of base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) and mining extractives and tax, respectively, in order to produce two respective submissions to these sub-committees. The purpose of this meeting was to provide recommendations for the sub-committees from a CSO perspective. This was further highlighted by presentations from Savior Mwamba (TJN-A) and Thembinkosi Dlamini (Oxfam GB).
