Treatmnet of taxable earnings refunded in clawback of maternity leave

Posted 21 November 2014

My question is around the treatment of the tax on maternity leave that is clawed back. Our company pays 4 months full pay while an employee is on maternity leave,but there is a clawback should the employee resign within 12 months of returning from maternity leave.

We calculate the clawback on a gross salary plus allowances and any benefit payments, eg: Basic pay, plus travel allowance, plus company paid medical aid, plus company paid provident fund, and deduct the sum of these from any outstanding money due to the employee. We deduct the total due as an advance and credit the cost centre accordingly....

Need clarification on whether an ITA34 means they have concluded your review by SARS?

Posted 11 November 2014

I would just like clarity on this. I submitted my return, they asked for supporting docs, I gave my tax certificate of medical aid only and then was issued with a ITA34 which said said I was due a refund.I don't have an ITSA, should we get both? See below. What I am unclear of is the wording, it says the assessment has been concluded but then later on it talks about info not matching and a review. I have looked back on previous returns I have done and it said the same and I got the refunds with no hassle. Just want to know if this is final now or may they come back and request more info or can I expect a payment in the next few days?...

2 requests to upload supporting documents - is that normal from SARS?

Advantages of paying for own medical aid rather than employer's contributions?

Posted 11 November 2014

Is there any distinct financial advantage to paying for my medical aid on my own (therefore not involving my employer at all), rather than opting for my employer to contribute a portion (which would form part of my total cost to company)?

In both instances, the Total Cost to Company would stay the same - I understand that the contribution from the employer does not get deducted from the income earned and thus the tax on income earned stays the same, apart from the tax credit for independents. If this is correct, it would seem that the only benefits would be that the employee receives monthly tax credits rather than once per year. ...
