VCC structuring and formation services

Jaltech has developed an extensive suite of Section 12J compliant legal agreements, policy documents and processes, drafted and approved by leading law firms.  This means that Jaltech has the necessary legal framework in place, which will allow the VCC to:

  • have multiple share classes thereby permitting investors to ring fence their investments in the VCC; or/and
  • have exposure to a portfolio of investments.

The ideal structure will ensure that the VCC is able to achieve the client’s objectives whilst simultaneously maximising tax efficiency for the client and potential investors in the VCC.

Once the client selects the ideal structure, Jaltech will assist with preparing and submitting the VCC application to the Financial Services Conduct Authority (FSCA), the South African Revenue Services (SARS) and the Financial Intelligent Centre (FIC), for the registration of the VCC.

This process (depending on the relevant institutions listed above) can take anywhere between 60 to 90 days.

During the registration process, Jaltech’s team will prepare the necessary documentation in order to ensure that the VCC is compliant, these include (but are not limited to):

  • 21 operational registers and 9 policies required by the FSCA;
  • Treating Customers Fairly policy;
  • Standard Operating Procedures such as how to deal with record keeping, fit and proper requirements etc;
  • FAIS compliant forms necessary to accept investments, which include, agreements detailing the rights of the shareholders of the VCC etc.

VCC administration

Once the VCC has been registered and all the legal agreements have been finalised, Jaltech will provide the extensive array of VCC administration services required. These services include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • maintaining and updating the 21 operational registers and 9 policy documents;
  • appointing and maintaining a key individual with the necessary FSCA licence as required by the FSCA;
  • managing the VCC in accordance with the FSCA’s requirements;

  • issuing, management and delivery of share and tax certificates to the shareholders of the VCC;
  • providing the necessary reports on behalf of the VCC to SARS and the FSCA;
  • preparing and submitting PAYE, VAT and all other statutory returns required in respect of the VCC;

Investment screening services

In order to ensure that the VCC’s investments are compliant with the legislation, Jaltech plays a lead role in screening investment opportunities. Jaltech will advise the VCC on how to structure a transaction, so that it is compliant with legislation. This service includes:
