Investment and capital transfer

Posted 29 July 2015

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....

Hello Tax Tim I work as an analyst full time; and in my free time I follow my passion for music and photography and take photos at festivals, clubs, pubs and other events.

When is tax payable on a five year fixed deposit with interest on expiry?

Posted 20 July 2015

If you have a fixed deposit with interest on expiry after five years, when do you pay tax on the interest?

It seems that SARS is taxing it every year on what has accrued each year, but surely this causes a cash flow issue for the investor as you are having to pay tax on something you only get in five years time? If this is the case why would anyone take interest on expiry?

Motor Bargaining council levies, were deducted, but I was never registered

Posted 16 July 2015

My employer was deducting Motor council levies, but I was never registered. They said I will not get my levies back to me.

Surely, the money that was originally deducted from me, went to another account, or invested elsewhere, how did they manage to do their tax return. Is there any way, that I should report this matter to SARS, etc?
