The Treasury was moving in the right direction in its review of tax incentives with the aim of lowering the corporate tax rate, tax expert Kyle Mandy said on Wednesday at the annual tax indaba.

Broadening the base will involve minimising tax incentives and introducing new interest deduction and assessed loss limitations. Rate reductions will be implemented in a revenue-neutral manner.
