I am 61 yrs. Old. I have been investing in ETF's as a form of retirement savings since mid 90's. I would like to move my total EFT's into an RA. Would SARS allow me to do this without without having to pay CGT on the "sale" of my EFT's.
I am earning a local profit from trading Bitcoin in various exchanges throughout the world. I have lodged this under: Other Receipts Accruals - Royalties - Amount Profit - 49224
This profit was calculated by tracking how many payments I receive FROM BitX.co.za and Ice3x.co.za (which was used to trade Bitcoin for ZAR) LESS payments made TO BitX and Ice3x, as well as all payments made to my Mercantile Bank account (which is only used to send Forex to offshore Bitcoin exchanges) as well as any other Forex payments (through my main account at FNB) destined for offshore Bitcoin exchanges...

I earned income as the result of trade in financial derivates. I am not a professional trader and do this in my spare time. How do I declare this on the ITR12 and how do I claim expenses against this income? Is this defined as a business or as investing and capital gains? I used my home office and own equipment for financial research and online trading. In a previous answer you stated that this type of income can be declared on the ITR12 but somehow I missed it in the TaxTim Q&A process. When I ...
I earned income using financial derivatives during the 2014/2015 tax year. I was not registered as a provisional tax payer. Can I declare my income on the ITR12 personal income tax return? If not, what steps do I need to take?
I own Richemont and Billiton shares that are dual listed on the JSE. On my IT3b:
- Richemont dividends are shown as "foreign dividends" and 35% tax is deducted as "foreign tax paid". - BHP Billiton dividends are shown as "foreign dividends" but the normal 15% witholding tax is deducted.
Do I need to declare both of these under foreign dividends and foreign tax credits or are they different?
I would like to sell a rental property which was my primary residence from 1 September 2007 -30 June 2012. It has been rented out from 1 July 2012 till the date of sale? December 2015. This means it was my primary residence for 5 out of 8 years. Is the capital gains calculated for the 3/8 years ie: 37,5%?
During the past tax year, my husband and I (married out of community of property) bought a property together to rent out. We fixed it, but subsequently sold it for various reasons. Which section does this capital gains tax fall under? It's not under interest/investments and the questions under "business" confuse me... Thanks,
My partner and I rent out the garden cottage of our primary residence, the bond of which is jointly registered in both our names. We are not married. The rental is paid into her account, but I pay for most of the expenses from my account... The bond on the property etc. How should the rental income be declared - hers since it is paid into her account, or jointly (50%-50%) since the asset is in both our names and we otherwise share household expenses?
I bought a car for my mother as she is not credit worthy. She sold her old car and that money was paid into my bank account. I use that money and an extra R20 000 to pay of on the new car. How do I declare that income on my IT12?
I have a second property that was my primary residence for 5 years (bought for R200k) and then rented it out for another 6 years. Not I sold it (R500k). Do I pay Capital Gains Tax for the entire 11 years (R300k) or can I pro-rata the Taxable Capital Gains as (6/11 x R300K = R163. 6k).
I have a EME Company registered for turnover tax. The profit is under R200 000, thus exempt from Dividend Tax. When I pay dividends to one of the two 50/50 share holders, must that share holder pay any tax on the dividends received, and can I pay all dividends to only one share holder?
I am a South African citizen who used to work in SA (tax registered), but have been studying full time in the UK since February 2015, being paid a monthly stipend of 1150 pounds by my financial sponsor (It sounds like a lot if converted to Rand, but it is barely enough). Do I have to pay tax on this income in South Africa?

I just got notified that you submitted a revised ITR12 which records the primary residence exclusion of R2000 000. The new ITA34 I received now reflects an amount of -R14 290. 15. But now I am being audited. They are not clear on the documents that I have to submit. They ask for my IRP5, medical aid certificate, IT3B tax certificate. With regards to the capital gains part, there are no specific requests. Should I submit the final statement of accounts for the purchase and sale of my former resid...
