What do you do if you have an outstanding SARS tax return for 2011 if you do not have an IRP5 for that tax year since the company you were working for cannot be found/traced? I was working on a contract basis and do not recall ever receiving an IRP5 for that year. I have submitted tax returns before and was never made aware of any outstanding tax returns. Only now that SARS needs to pay me money back do they mention that there is an outstanding tax return for 2011. How does there system work? I ...

My previous employer liquidated on 12 February this year & the liquidation hasn't been completed yet. I am scheduled to move to work in Dubai in mid April on a 3 year non binding contract and I am wondering what would be the best solution to file my tax returns for the 2016 tax year?

I worked for a company for one day and I haven't tax returned due to personal circumstances in 2014. I have been unemployed ever since. SARS is requesting I think an ITR12 / IRP5. I cannot submit either of these documents. What do I do besides get an affidavit?
I have outstanding tax returns for 2012/2014/2015 and the subsequent penalties outstanding PLUS an arrears amount of just short of R20 000. I am registered for e-filing but find expenses I can claim for and their relevant codes very confusing so have saved the tax returns without any expenses claimed. I am a commission only earner in property sales and have IRP5's for the relevant periods. I have not kept a log book for petrol and kms but have slips for petrol, car expenses, data costs, client ...
My husband still owes his 2010 tax return to SARS. His employer never furnished him with a IRP5 and also never paid over his tax for that year or supply him with a payslip. Up to today he did not supply him with an IRP5 and I am worrying myself sick about the penalties and stuff. What must he do? Will they keep my husband accountable for that money? Thx this is a great website. Wish I knew about it earlier! Will definitely do my tax return via you.
A client of mine is the sole shareholder and employee of his company. He does a lot of car travel for his work. What is the most beneficial method in terms of tax: to buy a car in his own name, or to buy one in the company name and use it for business and personal (will be small personal use)?
What tax code must be used when a company reimburses fuel only and business km's exceeds 8000km per annum. There is no refunds for wear and tear, repairs and maintenance or insurance. At present the code on the IRP5 is 3702, is this correct?

I was unemployed for roughly six months of the 2015/2016 tax year, do I need to submit any proof. Now with the new work I have to pay provisional tax because I work for myself but not as a company, how does this affect tax deductions?
I am quite confused and google doesn't help. I am a freelancer and I work from home. I have a dedicated office therefore I deduct my business expenses. I recently had to upgrade my computer network - my question is, is this an expense i. E. Do I deduct the amount I spent buying the computer, or do I have to do the depreciation calculation? Is there some monetary limit to make it easier to figure out when it is an expense and when the depreciation calculation must be applied?
As a provisional taxpayer, what expenses can I claim to reduce my tax. I travel to clients, can I claim my travelling, also I had to replace engine and clutch I this tax year, can I claim for these expenses and what portion would I get back from SARS
SARS Haven't paid me my refund for 2014 / 2015 both was audited. They say I must summit my 2008 IRP5 and the company that I worked for at that time doesn't have any record of it now. They say I must get an Affidavit at a police station and summit to them. What must be written in the Affidavit?
If you are self employed and pay provisional, can we use the SARS tables or are we required to give actual costs.... I. E. Fuel repairs...,, If we are required to give actual cost can we claim back finance repayments or the interest only, aswell as 20 % depreciation... Older posts →← Newer posts1234567891011121314
