Does provisional income/ capital gains count towards income iro RA contributions?

Posted 1 December 2015

I own a business and I draw a standard non- pensionable salary of R1 440 000 (120K p/m). I pay R360k (30k p/m)to an RA. Which means I actually don't earn enough to achieve the max tax destructibility for my RA. However this year for the first time I have other income from share sales (my share trading G&L statement currently reflects a gain of 264K). Will this income add to the non-pensionable salary above and thereby reduce the disallowed portion of the RA Contribution?
