Thomson Reuters Tax & Accounting Aumentum Case Studies, Case Studies Archives, Resources March 26, 2014

The City of Cape Town, with a population of over three million, is the second-most populous city in South Africa, and the largest in land area— encompassing almost 1000 square miles.

Considered to be one of the most multicultural cities in the world, it is the provincial capital of the Western Cape—one of the Country’s nine provinces—as well as the legislative capital of South Africa, where the National Parliament and many government offices are located.

During the past decade, Cape Town has embraced a new set of valuation statutes, updated its technology and processes, and continued to make improvements on an annual basis. From its general valuations in 2000, 2006 and 2009 to recent systems upgrades, Cape Town has realized quantifiable returns on its investments and added value to improve efficiency and provide better outcomes for its citizens.
