Thank you. If the employer does not meet his self imposed deadline to repay you your salary is :
Apologies about the delay in responding to your query. Before I get to your request for clarification - what is your opinion of the two previous questions - 'act of insolvency and liquidation'?
Actually the company that I work for is registered in Mauritius for the purposes of tax efficiency - it has no employees and does not 'operate'. In other words it is a holding company. Sometimes I get paid by this Mauritian holding Co and sometimes from SA, depending on where there are sufficient funds to pay me. To complicate things further I do project work in Mozambique for two Mz registered operating companies that are 'controlled' (from an equity point of view) by the M company.
I suppose the obvious question is what does my letter of appointment say. Well, it has the M company as the employer due to the tax advantages but in reality does not exercise any control over my working life that all comes from SA. Too complicated?
