About the valuator:

Anthony van Zantwijk is a patent attorney specialising in the commercialisation, taxation and valuation of intellectual property, and consults to many of South Africa’s top ten companies, multinationals, Treasury, SARS and SARB.

While employed at one of South Africa’s leading IP firms, Anthony inter alia valued IP totalling billions of Rand. During 2005, he took up employment at SARS’ Large Business Centre (Special Projects division), where he was responsible for reviewing and regulating IP tax structures and valuations. While at SARS, Anthony successfully challenged a number of high value IP valuations. Anthony continues to consult to SARS on IP tax structures and valuations and consults to many other South African Regulators and government funding agencies on this and related topics.

Anthony has also been engaged as an expert valuation witness by the South African Reserve Bank (Exchange Control division).

During 2006/2007, Anthony developed the IP valuation model currently used by SARS and made available by SARS to SARB.

Anthony has presented various courses on IP valuation. In addition, Anthony lectured the IP module of the Wits’ (University of the Witwaterstand) H.Dip (Tax) course and the IP commercialisation, royalty determination and IP valuation modules of the Wits’ LLM (IP law) course. Anthony was engaged by Treasury to rewrite the IP sections in the South African Income Tax Act and to draft anti-avoidance tax legislation relating to IP. His articles on IP tax, exchange control and valuation have been published in various publications, including Finweek, Financial Mail and Without Prejudice and Anthony has contributed various chapters (including a chapter on IP valuation) to the Practical Tax Handbook (published by Fleet Street Publications). In 2017 Anthony was engaged by SARS as an expert witness in IP transfer pricing litigation.
