I have started a new job and have been told my salary will be R7000 a month, on top of this, they are saying that I am going to be taxed 18% per month. I am just a bit confused. . This seems very high for such a small salary. . . And then there comes the topic of rebates. I have been told that at the end of the tax year I can claim this back? But this is all going over my head, can you please confirm that the 18% a month tax is correct (i do not have any medical aid, retirement funds etc) and th...
My company taxes my Total Cost to Company which includes my pension fund contributions paid over. Example: CTC: R15 000
Medical Aid: 1348
UIF: 147. 80
Tax: 1592. 25
Less Tax Credit: 257
Net Salary: 10 904. 95
The full R15 000 is taxed, they list all of the above as company contributions. Is this correct?
I would like to understand the tax obligations, if any, for the following scenario and hope you will be able to assist with such. I am disabled and had to employ the services of a home based care worker to assit in my daily living activities/requirements. (since Jan 2015)
According to my understanding, such is not deemed to be a formal employment and thus would not be taxable (same as domestic workers), but I just want to make sure. Neither is UIF payable. Now for the tax question:
Hi, Please can you tell me if I am beneficiary of a trust under 65 years and my only income is local interest of 21500 and foreign interest of 2750 received from the trust how much will be the total interest included in my taxable income
I work less than 22 hours a week (part-time), and I am still a full-time student. I earn around R3000 a month, and will only be working till September. Do I have to pay tax? What is the 25% tax that my contract refers to? And UIF of 1%?
I am a housewife but am currently employed for the period of 4 months, earning R4000 pm. After this 4 month period I will be unemployed. My employer does not deduct PAYE. I have two questions about my situation. First, do I need to register as a tax payer and do a tax return?
Secondly, can I have my salary paid into a joint bank account that I share with my husband or will this implicate him on his tax return? Should I rather open up my own bank account?
Got a penalty for not submitting for 2010, 2011 and 2012. Taxable pay over threshold and did not submit. Believed it was under the "do not have to submit bracket" but do not know what it were for those year. Will submit now for all years and even my spouse will submit his 0 income. Please can you supply us with the "do not have to submit bracket" of those years. Want to challenge the penalties. Thank You
I am doing some admin work from home and have been paying Provisional Tax for the last 3-4 years. Twice a year someone has been doing my tax return via eFiling for me. I realize now that I don't earn enough to even complete a tax return. To be on the safe side I want to complete a nil return but am not sure how to do it. I don't want to ask the same lady to do the nil return for me because she will charge me . I would like to know how to do it myself because it is now due.
I have dual citizenship. I have resided in the UK for the last 5 years with my children. Income from living annuity is being limited to 3%.
