Another basic question . . . . Sorry!
Just to make 100% certain, under "Travel claim against allowance" is insurance and license fees simply the total of all the insurance premiums I've paid for the tax year period plus license fees incurred?
1) I receive a Travel Allowance for my vehicle, am I allowed to claim the costs incurred on services done?
2) I am on my parents medical aid. If I pay for pills etc not covered by my parents medical aid, can I claim these expenses?
Hi. I am currently filling out my return. Regarding medical expenses not covered by my medical aid - do I have to have the receipts for these in order to claim. In many instances for prescriptions I have had filled out I have the invoices but not the receipts. The payments do reflect on my credit card statement though. Is this adequate or must I have a receipt ?
Hi, I transferred my entire provident fund into a retirement fund & a preservation fund. I received 2 IT3A certificates from the administrator indicating the amounts sent to the fund groups. These certificates do not come up automatically on my tax return, do I have to type them in manually or are these documents just indicating what has gone to the funds and I don't have to worry to put anything on my tax return?
Thanks for an awesome blog!!!!! Its the first time that I submitted for a tax return. I completed it a few days ago for the last 5 yrs. It showed that a refund is due for 2013 and 2014, but for 2014 they want supporting docs. Since I have no medical aid, travel allowance etc I submitted my IRP5's - is this all I need to submit and what are the chances of the refund amount changing etc?
I have been asked to submit supporting documents. I don't have the receipts for medical expenses just a tax invoice (as always) from my pharmacist for the total amount for the period, what happens now?
I earn a set salary with commission and allowances such as travel and cell phone and a small portion of medical aid.
1. Can I claim back for the additional Gap cover I pay for?
2. Can I claim for my monthly insurance on my car?
3. Can I claim for my car license I paid for?
I had been using a broker over the last 2 years and I see they never put in for any of the above. Nor did she claim for the service I paid for on my car?
Please can you help?
How is taxation calculated on employer provided vehicle? Should it be taxed monthly or do you calculate it when you submit your income tax return?
Can you deduct fuel cost? Should a logbook be maintained?
I did not receive a travel allowance, but on my IRP5 there is R25,000 with the code 3713. Any travel I did for the employer I claimed back as a reimbursed claim. Is the R25000 correct?
Additionally, there are codes for 3801 and 3702 which I believe are incorrect. Can you clarify what these might be for?
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. I have been building up a profile over the past few years of my work and now I have artists and their relative management agencies showing interest in procuring some of my images.
I have not registered a company yet, nor have I sold any images as I first want to ensure I set up my "business" and contract documents correctly so my clients and I are covered fairly and equally...
I spent R4 085.53 on vehicle maintenance tyres, 25/08/2014. I spent R25 748.85 on cellular bills, at least 60 to 70 percent of this annual bill was work related (14/15). I spent R5 553.44 on vehicle insurance for the year (14/15).
My question is, where would I associate these expenses to?
I am offering a service to a company that is in Durban for a whole week. My accommodation and transport costs are billed to the client. My question is that does the accommodation costs attract output VAT for my company. Do I charge VAT for the accommodation billed to the client?
I am receiving a car allowance as I am using my own car and am a sales rep. The car is not in my name, it's in my brothers name, but I am paying him an amount of R3200.00 per month. SARS requested me to send them the lease agreement or similar in order to complete my audit, what can I sent to them? I also entered the cost price on my SARS eFiling as R150000 instead of R105000, how do I get that corrected?
My parents are both pensioners and dependent on me financially. I pay for their medical aid, while I am on another medical aid. I have included both medical aids on my tax return, with the appropriate number on dependents noted every month.
SARS has asked for supporting documents to be submitted. I submitted: yearly contribution summaries from both medical aids, monthly invoices from my parent's medical aid addressed to me with my bank account details on them, debit order statement from my bank showing both being deducted every month as well as a covering letter explaining the situation. ...
Using your tax calculator, why is the travel allowance deducted from your take home pay? I understand 80% is included for your PAYE calculation, but your travel allowance should get paid out, unless the company pays costs on your behalf. What am I missing?
I received a reimbursive travel allowance under code 3703 of about 41 000 on my IRP5. I traveled over 8000 km and my rate was above the gazetted rate of 3. 30 for part of the year.
1) Will SARS reduce my taxable travel allowance by 30 555(8000*3. 30). 2) If I kept a log book is they a section that I will enter the deductible amount on my IRP5 and what is the code. 3) Will I get a refund if my deduction amount exceeds my taxable travel allowance amount or is it limited to ...
