Terence AKA Represent Beats was born in the city of Bulawayo (Zimbabwe) although raised across a lot of towns in BYO. After his high school in Gifford High School he then moved to South Africa to study though his dream was to be a hotel manager little did he know that something was more real in him than management when he got to SA he took a gap year and over that period the music talent started surfacing while he was experimenting with the FL studio software that his young brother installed in their computer. One thing led to another and he fell in love with drums then started teaching himself with every material he could get, no too long into the drums adventure he developed a desire to learn the guitar. As he started learning the guitar somehow he started teaching drums and the music production wasn't yet that of a priority

although he still wanted to be a musical hotel manager. only mid 2013 he decided he would take the music production seriously, although people who heard his beats loved them he still felt they were to vague.A year went by while he taught himself a lot about the art and then he would make beats for him, his brother and one of their close friends, they would stay up writing songs all night, record and send to whomsoever was on their contact list but that wasn't enough still then 2015 he went to study at soul Candi hoping that would launch him to a place of satisfaction but he was wrong although he did gain experience.So as the Soul Candi wasn't so sweet for his busy soul he decided in 2016 to go back home and make a name for himself.He searched for studios to work till he got a spot at the current studio he is at (Zimbo music studios) from that time he has been involved with artists like Icy Murder,Cliff Jeans, Sleekstar, luminous, t1nda, Benny Jones, LaToya and many more and he's currently one of the executive producers in the compiled projects like luminous's ep and benny jone's upcoming album

At a recent business lunch the financial director of Internet For All (“IFA”), Mr Andersen, was privy to a conversation relating to the CEO and founder, Mr Galler, of the up and coming entity, BFFme. The recent illness of Mr Galler has resulted in him re-evaluating his priorities and he is considering stepping down as CEO and selling his business in pursuit of a greater work/ life balance. Mr Galler has owned 100 percent of the shares in BFFme since its incorporation five years ago and the business is still in a developing and growing phase. Mr Andersen was quite curious about this topic and decided to research it a little more. His research revealed the following:

Transfer pricing and thin capitalisation rules

Zambia does have transfer pricing and thin capitalisation rules. Several provisions in the Income Tax Act are designed to prevent various forms of tax avoidance. Transfer pricing provisions were introduced into the Act in 1999. These permit the Commissioner-General to compute income from transactions between associates to reflect arm’s length conditions and to assess the taxpayer involved to tax accordingly.

The transfer pricing rules were tightened in 2001, with the introduction of special provisions governing the issue of a security by a company to an associated company not belonging to the same Zambian grouping, where the determination of the arm’s length considerations is to be made with reference to certain criteria, including: (i) the appropriate level or extent of the issuing company’s overall indebtedness, (ii) whether the issuing company and a particular person would have become parties to a transaction involving the issue of the security or the making of a loan, or a loan of a particular amount, to the associate company, and (iii) the rate of interest and other terms that may apply to such a transaction.
