When should I register as provisional taxpayer from?

Posted 23 June 2014

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?

I freelance now and again but have a very low monthly income. Do I need to declare & register?

So additional monthly income is max around R2400 and that is not every month....
