Based on contemporary entrepreneurship literature, we investigate the impact of South African TEA rate on entrepreneurial attitudes and behaviour, using available secondary data over the years 2003-2014. The main finding of this study indicates that TEA rate is positively related to the GDP per capita and the unemployment rate in South Africa. The evidence provided in this study is consistent with the findings of prior studies. Furthermore, this study uses a generalised linear model to affirm the statistical significance of these relationships, and also ensured that spurious correlations did not impede the econometric estimation procedure.
