I am employed and earn a regular salary from my employer. BUT I also run a small business (just me as Sole Prop) on the side. (I help people with Web development and design work)How does tax work in my case? Do I need to put away a percentage of each transanction and pay it manually each year or how does it work? I don't want to get into any trouble with the tax man :-)
If your rent income and salary income amounts to less than the required amount for taxpayers to submit income tax does that mean I do not need to pay provisional tax or does any additional income count as 'taxable'?
I'm starting contract work on 1 July 2014 (payable by client in first week of August), in addition to salaried work. If I register as provisional taxpayer in July or August, would I still have to submit my first return this August, or should I wait until after Aug to actually register? I'm concerned that projected earnings to Feb15 will inflate what I'd need to pay in August, considering I wouldn't have earned it yet to keep the extra tax aside?
A client has broken his fingers and cannot perform his work commitments as a personal trainer and actor. He is trading as a sole proprietor. First question is, will he be taxed on his payout for impaired benefits from his insurance company? Secondly, what supporting documents need to be submitted to the insurance company for this payout? Thirdly, what expenses can be deducted from a client who is either a model/actor that is paid via an agent?
I am now 61 years old and retired Feb 2008. Up until then all taxes were up to date. Since then I moved and receive R90,000 pa rental income from my fixed property. I wish to establish if I am liable for any taxes on this rental income and if I must re register as a provisional tax payer in the light that I have never received any notices from SARS since retirement.

I work as an independent consultant for two organisation. I basically invoice these organisation monthly for work done. The contracts are structured in such a way that I should be paying tax myself.

I have started a new company and want to know the following:
My company won't be doing invoices or quotes nor will it be buying anything on credit. So no VAT will ever be charged from my side. In the future I see the company recruiting employees but for now it is just me. Do I need to register my company right now (if its just me) as I would like the perks of having the office space I am using to be taxable. I am using 2 parts of my house for work purposes (one for offices and the other for storage). ...
Hopefully you can please help me out, I registered for Tax a year ago, by default I was registered as a non-provisional tax payer and I am currently unsure of how I should classify myself for tax purposes. I'm also not working as a company or cc but as an individual.

I am the sole proprietor of my business. I buy up used motorcycles and scooters, which are mostly vintage and then sell them on to collectors. Some of my sales are to overseas buyers requiring me to export these vehicles. This is my only income. Am I required to register for provisional tax? Am I required to register for VAT?
I always need to pay money to tax at the end of the year. I know it is about R 12,000. Or R1000 pm. Why can I not pay in say R1000 pm Estimate without filling in complicated forms, then fill in complicated forms once a year. I.e. pay in what I think monthly. i.e. accumulate tax credits via payments ahead of the final annual analysis.. i.e. just pay initially when I can afford, and pay in the difference after completing complicated forms at financial year end.
Hi Tim. I am currently a South Africa provisional taxpayer but will be leaving SA to work for a US based company for the next 5 years . I will be leaving on the 30 June 2014 but will receive a pension payment commencing 1 July 2014 from my current employer for the next 5 years payable in South Africa . I will also receive a bonus in December 2014.
I will be out of the country for more than the 183 days as well as the 60 day consecutive period . My question is as follows :
I have a full time job and started offering to do freelance web designing for people. I have been told some conflicting information about tax, from being taxed 40% on additional income to additional income not being necessary to declare if its non-recurring.
I have a full time job and don't charge much for creating websites and there is the recurring income of web hosting that I charge clients monthly. I probably create a site once a month for about R2000 and hosting comes to a total of R400 a month (for all the sites I host). So additional monthly income is max around R2400 and that is not every month....
