Vodacom Hot Shots Dealer incentive Programme

The Hotshots programme is an incentive programme exclusive to Vodacom sales agents and store managers involved in the selling of Vodacom products and services.


Tax

In South Africa and under our income tax laws, the redemption of Hot Shots points by members for cash card vouchers, are deemed a taxable benefit. In respect of the Hot Shots programme, the member will only become liable for tax once a reward has been claimed, but not while the member is accumulating points. Redemptions of points during a period will constitute a disbursement to such members for which Vodacom will provide them with an IT3(a) with which to complete their annual tax return (if applicable).
