I earn R15000 per month and own my own business (cc) for the past 4 years I have never filed a tax return. I am now moving overseas and will most likely need a tax clearance certificate. What do I do now? I have heard if you earn under a certain amount you do not have to file returns.

I am a non resident South African - I have been living outside of the country continuously for approximately 3 years. My only source of income in South Africa is a rental property that I own. I still pay a bond on that property. I have therefore tried to complete my return by noting the above.

I'm sort of new to provisional tax (couple of recent months) and I was aware that I need to be submit a return by end of February. The one thing I didn't know is that I need to register for (IRP6) before I can submit one.

I was made a permanent employee as of 1 October 2014 and I started earning R10000 a month.

Hi TimI would like to know if a private company can deduct a loan repayment which was utilized in the production of income, the proceeds received and receivable, of which have been included in gross income.

SARS have asked me to take a look at my 2014 return and to correct any "errors" that I find. I receive property rental income. I have a bond on that property. Should I list the interest portion of my bond repayments under "interest" and am I able to claim the balance of the repayments under other? I seem to have entered those figures incorrectly, which may be what is bothering SARS.
I'm an educator who earns about 20k gross salary and I'm also earning my late husbands annuity income of 10k pm, but whenever I go to SARS to submit my returns it turns out that I owe them a lot of money because in 2013 I paid 28k and now they want 31k so I need help as I dont understand how it gets to that high amount every year.
