ITA34- Gives 0.00 as Net amouny payable but tax calculation result is "-18K".

Posted 27 September 2015

I submitted tax return (ITR12) for year 2013-2014 via SARS SARS eFiling and calculator shows that amount is -18K. But
ITA34 Notice of Assessment show "0" amount as net payable. What does this mean because I should be expecting 18K refund as per tax calculation pdf generated. Why ITA34 says "Net amount payable under this assessment after allowable credits
Compliance information:0. 00"???? Please help me to understand this.

Vehicle expenses for business

Posted 9 September 2015

When I was a sole proprietor, taxed under my own name, if I drove somewhere on business-related matters, I used my own vehicle. I then claimed those business kilometres as a proportion of the total expenses and depreciation on my vehicle over the course of the tax year. Now I have a (registered) private company - can I still follow the same process, and claim the travel expenses as a tax deduction for my BUSINESS? If not, what are the options for me?

Want to register for a tax number?

Posted 8 September 2015

I have been tax exempt since 1997 when I left the forces. Been operating on a ad hoc basis doing upholstery work for people privately at home and never completed any tax forms as such. I left the trade seeing it didn't enhance my life at all living on the edge to provide for family. Started as an independent recruiter in 2008 and earning between R 60 - 120 p/annum. Haven't got a tax number and want to know if I have to register and if so how do I go about to registering for a tax number?

Does Pension Lump Sum Income get added to Normal Income for determining tax liability?

Posted 3 September 2015

Do you get taxed twice when withdrawing early before age 65 from a pension fund? So the first tax is when the tax directive is issued by SARS, and then the second when you complete your tax return and declare the lump sum payout as an income. Does this pension lump sum income get added to your normal income to increase your total income when determining tax liability?

Taxes for a dormant company

Posted 3 September 2015

Sometime last year I registered a company, but it has basically been dormant and I only pay the -R60 into my FNB business account every month to cover the fees (and keep my balance in the black). Instead I have just been doing business in my personal capacity and paying personal income tax (and provisional tax of course). I am unsure about about the rules governing companies, do I still need to submit any forms to SARS (or anybody else for that matter)?

Tax payment from salary

Posted 30 August 2015

If I am employed under a sole proprietor, and my salary has not deductions at every "pay-day" (eg. I don't received a salary advice reflecting deductions of PAYE or UIF). Would there be any recourse against me from SARS, is it the responsibility of the company to make the relevant deductions each month and to pay it to SARS?

I am really uncertain about all of these things, as in the past (before my retrenchment period prior to this job), the companies that I worked for did all of thes...

Provisional Tax, should I submit?

Posted 28 August 2015

I get income through three sources:
- Salary
- Rental Income
- Affiliate Advertising Income

This year, I filled in my tax return (using TaxTim) indicating that I am (or should be a provisional taxpayer). However, my rental made a loss after all expenses and my affiliate income was really small for the year (less than R5,000 after expenses). I received the following from SARS in my ITA34 for 2015 tax season:
"According to the information you declared in your income tax return, you were liable to pay provisional tax for this year of assessment...
