In the completion of the ITR12 assets and liabilities section, SARS are asking for the assets at cost. This is the first time I am submitting assets and liabilities so want to be sure the cost is reflected "correctly". What is the definition of cost, example for a home purchased 20 years ago. The current value or the original price that was paid?
Do I need to declare lump sums that I received from an inheritance? The lump sums were from retirement annuities, a life policy and proceeds from a fixed property that was sold out of the estate. Thank you!
I have recently got married to a UK national and he is wanting to transfer some funds for an investment in SA. He is going to transfer the funds into my current account which I will then transfer into a unit trust.
Firstly do I need to submit a donations form they have on the SARS website and if it exceeds the R100,000 will it be liable for tax? Secondly the income from the investment will be paid monthly. If it exceeds the R23,080 annual exemption what is the rate on the excess? Is it still taxable even if it is below R70,000 per year? I have no remuneration just the investment income....
I received my IT/IB 3(b) and IT/IB 3(c) from Satrix. The IT/IB3(c) reflects disposal of Unit Trusts or financial instruments with source code 4250. I did not cash in any of my EFT's but transferred them from one fund to another. Must I still reflect these values in my tax form?
If yes, which figure do I reflect for source code 4250? - weighted average value, Gross Proceeds, Nett gain / loss or weighted average value.
My bond was registered for my investment property end April 2014. Please advise if I can claim under expenses incurred all of the bond and transfer fees amounting to R31,336. I called SARS contact centre and the lady advised that I am allowed to do so but from her tone of voice was not 100% certain. I have a reference number for the call whereby she agrees that I can claim as an expense. Please can you advise me as to what I should do?
I have sold some shares, and made a small profit. Reading the rules around tax on shares, I have deemed it to be subject to Capital Gains tax, and not taxable income. Could you please advise where to declare it on my SARS e-filling, under local gain/loss?
I don't see a section where I can write a description or enter a source code. Do I need to declare this amount if it falls within the annual exclusion amount?
I had a Capital Gain from the sale of shares in April 2014. My tax return is due by November 2015. Is it better to wait until then and pay the tax or make the declaration now and pay now? If I declare now am I obliged to pay tax immediately or is there a penalty if I only pay by November 2015?
I have been working as a teacher in Dubai for 15 years. Prior to this I lived in the UK since 1984 and I was born there. I lived in SA from 1974 to 1984 as a child and gained SA citizenship, bought property and spent holidays in SA whilst teaching in Dubai. I will now move to live in SA on a permanent basis. My question is whether I will be liable to pay tax on my overseas earnings from March to July 2015 (the month I tax return to SA).
I own ONE property which I previously resided in (property A). I now rent this property (A) out to other people and reside in a different house which I rent from someone else. I have now sold the property (A).
I owned the property for 9 years of which I resided in it for 6 years (rented out the first year and the last /- two years). Given that it is the only property that I own and I previously resided (Sch8 s44(b)) in it, will the sale qualify for the primary residence exclusion in...
Hi, How does Capital Gains Tax work? I sold a property and someone said I should indicate that it was my primary residence although I have another property. The one I sold was being rented out. Surely SARS would be able to see that? Thanks
I received some share options from my employer that have vested and have been sold. What amount should be shown on my IRP5 under code 3718? Should the amount be the value of the shares when the shares vested or the value of the share when the shares were sold? In my case the difference in the share price between the vesting date and sale date is over R20000.
I bought a property in the previous tax year and paid initiation fees which were included in my bond account. Can I include the initiation fees as bank charges when doing my income tax return? Also the tenant didn't like the color paint in the house and we had to repaint the house can I deduct that cost under repairs and maintenance?
How do I create/make a personal statement of assets and liabilities for a member of cc or a director. I am told this should indicate all income received by the person and shares, unit trust and other holding he/she may have. As well as all expenses made by the individual RA's Medical Aid and so on.
