WHAT ARE DEDUCTIBLE EXPENSES FOR SELF-EMPLOYED SURGEONS

Posted 15 November 2014

I am a self-employed surgeon in the private sector. My business is my primary source
of income with most expenses [ including the astronomical amount for my insurance!] being
covered by it.

How do I fill in my tax return? What can my deductible expenses be? I travel to congresses

When I was employed in the state sector it was much easier with my IRP5 Form.

Where do I enter the capital gain for unit trusts on my tax return

Posted 13 November 2014

I have an IT3c unit trust provisional consolidated capital gains tax certificate in front of me. I need to fill in the capital gain for my unit trust under code 4250. I believe I need to select the last question on the first page saying - have you received any additional income. From there it gets rather confusing because it asks me under capital gain what assets and how many I have disposed of? Where do I just fill in the capital gain for unit trusts? If I say that I have disposed of assets and...

Posted 12 November 2014

In response to your blog entry "What?%u20AC%u2122s the delay with getting my SARS Refund?". When and how does SARS become liable to pay interest on late refund payments? Surely there must be a mechanism to keep SARS honest when it comes to keeping our money and delaying our refunds?

Need clarification on whether an ITA34 means they have concluded your review by SARS?

Posted 11 November 2014

I would just like clarity on this. I submitted my return, they asked for supporting docs, I gave my tax certificate of medical aid only and then was issued with a ITA34 which said said I was due a refund.I don't have an ITSA, should we get both? See below. What I am unclear of is the wording, it says the assessment has been concluded but then later on it talks about info not matching and a review. I have looked back on previous returns I have done and it said the same and I got the refunds with no hassle. Just want to know if this is final now or may they come back and request more info or can I expect a payment in the next few days?...

How will I be taxed as a freelancer on retainer?

Posted 3 November 2014

Hi there!

I am currently full-time employed as an editor, but would like to go freelance next year. I am busy putting a proposal together to encourage my current employer to keep me on retainer for a portion of my current duties, for a portion of my current salary from January 2015, so that I can at least be guaranteed a basic salary for the first year or so of being a freelancer while building up a client base.

As far as tax goes, my understanding was that the burden was on freelancers to submit quarterly or annual tax returns, and that employers using freelancers were not necessarily obligated to deduct tax on their fees...

Is there a threshold for registering for provisional tax for a non salary person?

Posted 3 November 2014

I run my own business as a sole prop in my own name. I read somewhere that if my taxable income is below a certain threshold for the year, that I do not need to register as a provisional taxpayer. Is this correct? I was under the assumption that because I earn income other than a salary (from carrying on a trade) I am automatically a provisional taxpayer?

If I am below the threshold and do not need to register, then how will I know this before hand? For example, for the 2015 tax year, I will only know if I am below the threshold at the end of the year, being Feb 2015. By then, I would be late in submitting my provisional tax returns (due in Aug 14 and then Feb 15)?...

Must I submit a provisional tax return if I only became a provisional taxpayer in October?

Posted 3 November 2014

I started my own business on 1 October 2014 and am now running as a sole prop. I am aware that I am now a provisional taxpayer and need to submit IRP6's.

My question is do I need to go back and submit an IRP6 for the first provisional return for 2015 tax year at end August 2014 (for 201501) even though I was not a provisional tax payer at that stage?

Would I just submit a Rnil return?
