Two employers. Do I have to register as a provisional tax payer?

Posted 28 July 2015

I receive an income from two employers. R10 000 from the one, who obviously deducts PAYE and R4500 from the other, who does not deduct PAYE, as the amount falls under the threshold.

Do I have to register as a provisional tax payer or can I register at the end of the year when assessments are due? I have never registered to file a tax return before, as my income has always been exempt from having to file tax returns. This will be my first time filing a tax return.

Separating IRP5 related sales from income total

Posted 25 July 2015

I run a small business which sells research services. It's a sole prop, but when I'm contracted by university it generates an IRP5. In my income tax return, when it asks, after the question about the value of sales, if there is any income reflected on an IRP5, does that mean I shouldn't include the IRP5 income in my total sales figure? Also, where (and what rate) do I claim insurance for necessary equipment such as my car, computer, and phone?

Deductible company expenses

Posted 16 July 2015

For many years I operated as a sole Proprietor. Early 2014 I registered a PTY Ltd and duly traded as the PTY LTD. As executive director, by choice I did not draw any salary, the idea being that this would help the company cashflow by saving more working capital. I paid for all vehicle expenses ie fuel, maintenance, privately out of my savings, but approximately 90% of the vehicle use and expenses are attributable to the PTY LTD business. Is there any way that these expenses can be recovered from...

This year I am earning double what I did last year and feeling a bit concerned that I may have missed the magic line which crosses me over into a provisional tax payer? ...

REIT treatment and provisional tax

Posted 2 July 2015
