Business Transactions Law, now in its ninth edition, addresses fundamental questions about business transactions: When is a transaction recognised as binding at law? If a transaction is binding, what is its legal effect? Are there any circumstances in which a party is excused from carrying out his side of a transaction? What legal redress does a party have if his opposite number fails without excuse to do what he has promised in terms of the transaction? Apart from this redress, are there any other legal means available to a party to ensure that he receives what he has been promised by the other party? Finally, what is the position if a party, due to financial difficulties, is unable to carry out or complete his side of the transaction? The objective, as with previous editions, is to meet the needs of students and others taking their first steps in the complex field of business transactions law. The aim is also to cover a significant part of the syllabus recommended by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants. New legislation and case law are included in the ninth edition. The chapters on Interpretation and Credit Agreements have been re-written and other chapters have been revised wherever necessary to reflect legislative changes or developments in the case law. The ninth edition of Business Transactions Law has approximately 200 new case summaries in total.
Mastering Group Financial Statements Volume 2 is part of a two-volume set which provides accounting students and practitioners with an invaluable practical guide to the often complex world of group accounting.
Volume 2 is an essential resource for understanding the application of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) to business combinations, investments in associates and joint arrangements, changes in ownership interests in investments, foreign operations and the group statement of cash flows.
The book gives detailed explanations and numerous practical worked examples, to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of the IFRS principles and concepts underlying group accounting. It therefore serves as a roadmap for preparing group financial statements in varying scenarios.
Along with technical group accounting guidance, this text offers practical group accounting exam techniques, intended to minimise time students spend answering questions and maximise marks earned. The self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter, together with comprehensive online case study questions and solutions, allow students to test their understanding of the subject matter and sharpen exam technique.

A proper understanding of the law of contract requires far more than the mere rote learning of principles extracted from cases. Contract law is a practical subject and students will understand it best by applying contractual principles to practical, life-like scenarios. Student's guide to the law of contract fosters such an approach. It is filled with examples, exercises and problem-setting questions that increase gradually in level of complexity. This will facilitate discussion in study groups and during lectures. Spaces for the completion of exercises and summaries of prescribed cases enable students to engage actively with the learning material in one basic source. Student's guide to the law of contract can be used by lecturers as a primary teaching tool for undergraduate students to improve their students' knowledge and understanding of basic contractual principles, develop their ability to reason and stimulate their interest in the subject. Likewise, students will find it useful as an aid additional to lectures and more advanced contract law textbooks.
Immigration Law in South Africa outlines the existing law applicable to foreigners as reflected in the Immigration Act, the Citizenship Act, the Domicile Act and the Extradition Act as at 31 July 2017. The book also draws attention to the policy shifts by the South African government in the White Paper on International Migration, the Border Management Act, and the Discussion Paper on the repositioning of the Department of Home Affairs within the security cluster. Immigration Law in South Africa comprises three parts. Part One contextualises migration at an international level and within South Africa. This part discusses the concept of migration in the context of South Africa and on the international stage and how the human rights perspective has developed the notion of migration in South Africa. Part Two examines South African immigration law specifically - whom the state allows to enter and leave, who is considered undesirable or prohibited, permanent residence, and the various types of short-term visas that are offered to foreigners. Part Three considers the penalties that South Africa can impose on foreigners who violate the immigration laws of South Africa: the deportation, detention and extradition laws relating to immigrants in South Africa are examined.
The purpose of this casebook is to provide an elementary reader of case law and materials for a first course in property law. The layout and structure of case reports and legislation are discussed and explained, and students are provided with practical hints and advice regarding the reading of cases and legislation. One case is reproduced in full and used as an example of how cases should be analysed and read. Other cases are reproduced selectively to allow students to develop and exercise their skills in the analysis and reading of cases. The 8th edition has been updated with new cases until July 2015. The inclusion of cases on constitutional law illustrates the interplay between the common law, constitutional law and legal reform. The Casebook should be used together with Van der Walt and Pienaar's Introduction to the Law of Property (7th edition) and Inleiding tot die Sakereg (7de uitgawe), but references to other textbooks have been included.
