A trust is registered as a provisional taxpayer. All the income in the trust vests fully in the beneficiaries meaning that no income is retained in the trust. Will the trust still have to submit provisional tax returns even though it will always be nil?
I was a permanent employee at a company for the first 6 months of the tax year. I have gone freelance for the remainder of the tax year and the foreseeable future. I am receiving a salary in effect as the companies I freelance for deduct 25% tax on my earnings and pay me a monthly lump sum (salary) and they provide IRP5s. Does this mean I won't have to register as a provisional tax payer and also at 25% tax could I apply for a tax directive?
I started a small business where I provide administrative services to one company at a cost of R10 000 per month. What will the tax implications be? Will I be able to register for turnover tax or what would be the best option?
I resigned from my job in 2010 and took my pension to buy a small business, which I ran as a sole proprietor for 2. 5 years. During this time, I did not submit a tax return, as I wasn't sure how to do it. Also, I was not making much profit and more or less came out even at the end of every month. I then passed the business on to my son-in-law and started working again in 2013. All the income and expenditure info relating to the business was contained on a laptop, which subsequently crashed, so I...
Hi there, I have been working from home for a couple of months now for a company I used to work in-house full time for. Better explained - I now work on a freelance basis for the same company but I get a weekly salary, the same each week and its on-going. I had the understanding that my tax was being deducted off my salary, that the company was taking care of this. I recently realised that this is not the case and I should have registered as a freelance practitioner and taken care of my own tax....
I am currently running a business as a sole proprietor and have registered for provisional tax. I have already submitted 2 provisional tax returns for the 2015 tax year (IRP6). Now do I also need to submit a ITR12 for January? Does TaxTim also help with this type of ITR12, and if so, is it any different from your standard ITR12? How should I answer the initial TaxTim questions differently?

I am a bit undecided if I want to register a new Pty Ltd due to all the tax requirements. For the moment there will be no employees as it will be a part time business for myself in which I will provide financial services and consulting. Please assist in advising me if I will need to register for PAYE and also income tax, even though the business will be very small and start off with less than R50 000 income per annum?
What is the difference between a sole proprietor and sub-consultant. I am a sub-consultant and work on an hourly rate. My income is not the same every month. I use the companies' offices from time to time. I have been a sub-consultant since August 2015. The company deducts tax from my monthly income and will provide me with an IRP5. My question is should they deduct tax?
SARS is asking for supporting documents related to my tax return but I have been unemployed and living abroad for three years! I don't have any of the documents they are requesting. I still pay provisional tax and submit that tax return dutifully. I read that I must swear an affidavit at a police station but I am currently not in the country and won't be back for several months - they need these supporting documents in 21 days. What must I do? (I did email them, asking them what to do, but they ...
