I am currently a salaried employee and I get deductions for: - Medical aid - Travel allowance - Retirement (RA)
I am considering contracting (to one client). Will my total monthly invoiced amount be taxed normally? I will have to pay for medical, travel and RA directly. Am I losing out or do I still claim for these somehow?
