I started a job out of SA on 1 August 2014 and traveled regularly from SA to my place of work out of SA on rotation up until the end of the job on 29 February 2016. For the 12 month period 1 Aug 2014 - 31 July 2015 I exceeded the 183 and 60 day requirements. I therefore claimed my tax exemption on my 2015 tax return (for the income earned during Aug 2014 - Feb 2015). For the period 1 August 2015 to 29 February 2016 I exceeded the 60 day requirement but not the 183 days. However, if I calculate 1...
I have a 'Life cover' policy with Old Mutual that pays out the same value as the assurance value under 'Earning ability cover' section of the policy. Can I claim this as income protection from SARS? Old Mutual has not issued me with a tax certificate for this policy. Many thanks
When working successive years out of SA on a rotation basis (regular travel to and from SA) am I able to overlap my 12 month periods I use when calculating the days worked out of SA?

I use my car to go to and from work. I bought the car in 2015. Can I use this as a deduction on my next tax return? I also use my personal Laptop for work, all day everyday, bought it about 2 years ago, can I also get a deduction on this?
My monthly salary is split up into salary and travel allowance. Therefore my PAYE is calculated accordingly. The company pays for all my petrol, whether business or private. Do I still keep a logbook and can I still submit a claim?
I contract for a UK based company and and paid in Rands each month - a salary, and all my expenses. Currently I pay a tax person in SA to do my tax (I am paid in full and then it's my responsibility to sort my tax out), however I haven't received any rebates from SARS for 3 years despite all my expenses, including travel, office rental, parking (all business related). Wondering if you can help? Would TaxTim be able to deal with my provisional tax?
I am employed as a service engineer, receive a travel allowance and own my own vehicle. Our company is embarking on a work from home initiative where we will no longer have to come to the company offices every day before going out to see clients and repair equipment. In this new scenario where my administrative work would take place at home and I drive directly to my first client, then to the next etc before eturning home, what would be counted as business mileage and what as private?
I work full time, earning a salary and paying PAYE tax. Through the year I have some projects that enable me to generate some extra income. However, if I just do this as an individual, I incur additional income tax at my marginal rate. Is there a way to structure "freelance" work and projects (in something like a company?) so that I can pay less income tax whilst still abiding the law?
When I captured the details of the monthly salary expense it calculated the following: Gross salary: R16 772. 83 Included in gross salary is R1 500 provident fund contribution by the employer. Net salary calculated was R13 500. The provident fund contribution is a taxable fringe benefit from 1 March 2016, however, where was it taxed?
Do you also do small business tax? How much would cost for a small business tax? can I hire my unemployed family and friends and deduct their salaries from my revenues? And what would constitute proof of employment of these friends to SARS?
