If I earned no income from a rental property (which I rented out for about 7 years) and sold it in the same year, can I still deduct the expenses (levies, interest, rates) normally incurred from income, or should I add these costs to the Selling cost or Base cost to reduce capital gains tax?

I bought some Satrix Divi through the Satrix Investment Plan in Aug 2007. All dividends were reinvested by Satrix, ie every quarter more shares were bought. In July 2011, I transferred all of my "units" to an online broker and made no further purchases. For the first few months, my statements from that broker show a base cost per share of 0. Suddenly, in the March 2012 statement, it lists a cost per share, which appears to be the share price on March 16 2012. I have just sold these share...

I work for a small company and all of us earn salaries ranging from R3 000 to R4 500 and only the owner earns R25 000. So now the company wants to register for PAYE and UIF. So after reading through most of your articles and many other ones online I discovered there is a minimum amount per year that you have to earn and none of us reach that amount except for the owner. So does this means that the company can register for all those but not deduct anything from the rest of us but himself?
I pay Eskom directly for electricity. Every few months they overcharge and I have get them to refund and rebill. The issue here is that they only refund the service fees, never the tax portion.

How do I claim for the money paid in vat, if I even can?

Hi, I have filed tax returns with SARS through a practitioner in 2016 for the period (Aug 2015 - Jan 2016) when I was working in SA but I have been notified by SARS to verify bank account and address.
