Me and five members of my family want to start investing. Before the profits will be paid out the company that does the investments does the tax part on it and then pay us the profits. What I want to know is, if they pay the family members profit into my bank account with my profit will there be any problems with tax on my side because all the money is going to my account. The company will send each of us an IRP5 at the end of the season so that each of us can fill in our tax return.
Hi, I am working for an overseas startup. I get paid in dollars. For the last six months I have been getting $500 a month. Starting this month I will be getting incentives as well. It is below the salary for tax but I'm not sure how it works with an overseas company?
SARS want to me file all my previous tax returns in order to receive my refund for this year. In 2011 I tutored at a university and earned below the tax filing threshold and therefore did not file my tax return. How do I file my tax return now for 2012 or how do I show SARS that I didn't need to?
My husband pays the medical aid for himself and me his wife and 2 children and he claims the tax credit back for this. There is no point in him claiming additional medical tax credit for other medical out of pocket expenses as he earns too much to qualify for this. I however earn much less. Can I on my tax return claim additional medical tax credit for any medical out of pocket expenses for myself and my 2 children.
I submitted an income tax return as farming sole prop for 2016. SARS requested supporting documentation and then I uploaded an income statement. I then received an Operations Audit letter from SARS asking to furnish them with the reason of farming income loss. The letter was emailed and does not appear on SARS eFiling. On SARS eFiling they sent a new letter the same as the old one requesting supporting documentation and the generic letter that says if you dont agree re-look at your tax return. I...
I get paid a monthly pension from my late husband's employee benefits, on which PAYE is deducted. On the annual tax statement and the details that get sent directly to SARS, it will show the full gross pension for the year, less the PAYE paid. Why then, does the net pension amount (after PAYE) still get included in taxable income for the year? Surely I am then paying PAYE as well as another layer of income tax on the remainder, i. e.

I am a monthly salaried employee and my employer deducts PAYE. However, my salary is based on an hourly rate with no fixed base, i. E. No work, no pay, and varies from month-to-month.

I have submitted supporting documentation as requested by SARS in December already (22/12/2016). I have received another request for supporting documentation, but it seems to be for the same documents. Please help?
Hi Tim, I received a travel allowance upfront however I do a lot of traveling between two offices and I claim back travel on a monthly basis capped at 1850kms though I travel in excess of 2000kms per month. I've filed my tax return showing both business travel and personal but now SARS says I owe them about R27000. How is that possible when I didn't claim for the excess travel I did, just the capped 1850km. I can follow through their calculation but do not understand why they didn't include busi...
