I have recently inherited a sum of money from two sources. One, my late mother's estate account via a will and the other, a pension claim from my late mother's pension fund(GEPF).

In terms of the IRP3(a), how does one do the manual calculations of the taxation that should be deducted if ''other''(X) is ticked under the directive reason, as there are calculations available for the retirement and severance benefits.
I've been unemployed for the past six years. My tax number with SARS has been deregistered. Insurance company requested an IRP3 directive on my behalf from SARS. This was declined as I needed to re-activate my tax number. I'm awaiting for re-activation of my tax number. Presently I'm unemployed, will I be taxed and how much?
I built a home, had to move for work and am currently renting out my primary and only property for R16500 per month. In the area to which I moved for my new job I now rent a flat for R10 000 per month. Is there any differentiation in SARS for this scenario or is it regarded as an income of R 16500, I don't mind paying tax on the difference, but it feels like exploitation if I need to pay tax on the full amount of rent earned, I spend R 10 000 on having a place to stay!

I want to claim for travel allowance, should I use the deemed cost or the actual cost.
If I have been declared insolvent, can I still make claims against the business use of a vehicle if not registered in my name? For example, I make use of a vehicle registered in someone else's name, but I still make the payments as I am the driver of the vehicle for business purposes. Also, what if exemption was granted and I kept my vehicle, will I then still be allowed to claim against the use of my vehicle used for business even if I am sequestrated?
I am living abroad and get a disability income from Discovery Life every month paid into my South African account. If I want to transfer the money over a UK bank account, how do I do it? Also, are there tax implications in the UK then as well as South Africa when bringing it in?
I retired at age 65 during the course of the 2016 tax year. I claimed UIF retirement benefits which I received monthly (part in 2016 tax year and part in 2017 tax year). Will this UIF retirement benefit impact on my annual taxable income? Will I be receiving an IRP5 or IT3a from the UIF?
To what extent can one deduct coffee, tea and filtered water for business purposes (operating as a private company)? I am fully aware that input tax cannot be claimed on these expenses. Will one however be able to deduct for income tax purposes under Section 11(a) if the purpose of buying the coffee, tea and water is to consume during business hours?
You speak about rental income earned on a second property, and expenses (interest, electricity, etc) that can be deducted from the income. Does the same apply to a primary residence owned by the taxpayer where additional income is generated eg. By renting out a room in the property?
