SnapScan: Moving with the times - as always!


As you have come to expect from NFS, we work hard to make accessing our services to you as simple and convenient as possible. As our client meetings are now conducted virtually through Zoom, you no longer need to drive out all the way to our offices. We want to offer you another easy way to pay your fees with us – Snapscan.
What is Snapscan?
It is a cardless way to pay for goods and services using your smart phone. Follow these steps:
  1. Download and install the App on your phone via the App Store (if you have an iPhone) or Google Play Store (for Android phones).

  2. Load your card details onto the App (savings, debit or credit) following the easy-to-understand instructions on the App.


How do I pay with Snapscan?
  1. Tap on Snapscan on your phone

  2. Scan the Snapscan QR code (the square with multiple lines and blocks in it that you will see on the right hand side of our website)

  3. Enter your pin – Snapscan will ask  you for your invoice number and your name… that’s it!
Is it safe?
According to Standard Bank, your card details are securely encrypted (the bank does not have access to them, nor does the entity you are buying from/making a payment to). However, please note all South African banks and some prominent international banks can link their cards to this App.
Need assistance?
Feel free to contact our office for any assistance or queries.

Should we hold on to our properties, no matter what, since it is currently a ‘buyer’s market’? Should we put ourselves in debt and buy a property now? With all the economic insecurity people from all walks of life are facing, is using real estate as a form of passive income still a reliable investment?

If there is one thing that the current pandemic has taught us, it is that life is unpredictable. We need to put measures in place to make sure that we are prepared for the future. There have been many changes in how and where we work. This means that for many of us who work for larger institutions on a permanent basis, the traditional safeguard of a pension and or a provident fund remains but with a new structure.


For those who have started your own business or work for multiple employers (this is referred to as the Gig Economy) you will be best advised to invest in a Retirement Annuity (RA).


What are the most cost-effective options for saving for retirement?

A university has invited me to address their history department. I think they did so because I am the only fossil – an ex-student – they could find. Initially I thought it would be fun to tell the students about what it was like studying at that institution during the 1970s (the good old days?) but on reflection I realised it is all a bit embarrassing!
