I am a freelance web designer / developer. I work a normal 8 - 5 job during the day from which I get a monthly salary from my employer, I fall into the lower end of this tax bracket R377 451 - R528 000. On some months, I get side projects to work on and during the course of last year, the freelance business made approx R40000 (forty thousand rand) after expenses. I would like to find out if I should register as a provisional tax payer.
I got an sms from SARS saying that I owe them R5500. When I queried this,,my accountant said that SARS registered me as a provisional taxpayer, which I am not. I have a small private business in the health industry and the only other income I have is my son's maintenance from his father. How did this happen? And how can I deregister as provisional taxpayer?
