SARS, bitcoin wallets and disbursement of BTC funds

Posted 21 March 2016

However, there are a number of issues that I cannot get to grips with regarding the storage of BTC in a wallet and the further use of BTC outside the fiat system:

1) If I moved my BTC to a wallet provider outside of SA (blockchain, based in Luxembourg but servicing globally) does SARS see this as an offshore transaction? as:
a) The wallet provider is not a registered global institution as such. b) No interest is accumulated to this wallet / amount, so no income is generated.

Refund from SARS confirmed but not paid yet. How does SARS calculate refund on med expenses?

Posted 7 March 2016

I submitted my tax return through SARS eFiling on 20/11/2015 and it was confirmed that I am entitled to a refund but has not been paid yet. I only claimed for expenses listed on my medical aid IRP5 not covered by my medical aid so there was no strange claims made. However, if I remember correctly, the initial tax return after I submitted was the amount for those medical expenses but when I checked the status of that tax return now, It was almost R200 less. This also happened with my 2014 tax return!...

Another question - what if the business has run at a loss? It's a medical practice, and turns out many of my claims will only be processed in March 2016 i.e Next tax year.

Taking medical aid tax credits into account in provisional tax calculation

Posted 23 February 2016

Hi there, I need some help completing my second provisional tax return. My employer deducts my medical aid tax credits (for myself and a dependent) each month on my payslip. Therefore, on my payslip each month is my gross earnings less my deductions (of which the medical aid tax credit is subtracted from the monthly PAYE amount due).

My question is now when I submit my provisional tax return, do I enter the medical aid tax credits in the section provided for?...

Tax question on medical aid and correction for SARS

Posted 19 February 2016

I've just got back and seen the email from SARS. I have a few questions. 1. I made a mistake on the foreign Income, as it was through the business and not my personal account. I was busy doing my business accounts while filling in my personal tax and got confused. 2. My medical aid was paid by my previous employer. They forgot to cancel my medical aid and have asked me to pay them back for that year. I received a tax certificate from my medical aid so do I still qualify to claim tax from that?
