SATTSIM is a microsimulation model of tax and transfers in South Africa. It enables you to design direct anti-poverty tax and transfer policies for a specific time frame.
The model has 8 policy modules: two tax modules (income tax and value added tax) and 6 social welfare modules (child support grant, disability grant, care dependency grant, old age pension, basic income grant, and care giver grant).
The model gives you the tools to design your own short- and medium- term income tax and welfare policies, and to estimate their impact on budgets, poverty and income distribution.
