Hi Tim, I submitted my IRP5 and supporting documents on the 11th July 2013. They told me it will take 21 working days for me to get my money but I have not received anything yet. Will SARS pay interest to me for their delay? When will I get my money?
If I qualify to claim Home Office (Code 4028) expenses and I want to claim this, what is applicable? Note that I own the house and I have the square meters of both my office and my house. My office adheres to the criteria. My question is related to the claim amount.

Hi! Your website is very informative. I was requested to submit outstanding returns for last 5 yrs via telephone. I however updated the returns and then was asked to pay a penalty of R12500. A few weeks later I received an ITSA- statement of account stating I owe R50 404-00. I however settled the amount as my wife received disability from her insurance. The collection department stated that I still owe them the penalty of R12500. The ITSA only reflects interest on late payment and no pen...
In April this year we found out that our tax returns for 2010 and 2011 were never submitted by my company, so I did it ASAP. With the new tax return for 2012 we owed SARS money and they told us to pay it and we did. In May we found out that there was a penalty of R1250 so we paid that as well. So now we have made two payments to SARS and still no refund. When I call them they said I need to bring the deposit slips and I did and they said it will be any time in may that the return will be paid out. We are now in August and still no refund has been paid out. ...
I am confused about how the tax year relates to when you submit your return for that year. If it is August 2013 now, when is the next deadline for submitting a tax return? Has the deadline for submitting for the previous tax year already passed?
Two simple questions that I can't find answers to anywhere:
1. What happens if you cannot support expenses for a specific category on a tax audit for year that has already passed and been assessed (say audited for 2010/11 in 2013)? I.e. you lost an expenses file for the full 5 year tax period, and only have partial records via bank statements?
2. How likely is this scenario - i.e. SARS randomly auditing for previous tax years. I.e. during the 2013-14 tax year are you at risk of being randomly audited for the 2011-12 tax year?...
My wife & I left RSA in 2011 & living in Namibia (we're awaiting permanent residence approval). I receive a pension from Glacier (Sanlam) & they deduct PAYE. We also earn interest from ABSA in RSA & from Bank Windhoek in Namibia & from my son in Namibia. Do I have to submit tax returns in SA?
I currently live with my parents, on their property. I am looking at purchasing an apartment for R650 000 and renting it out. I have been given the option of paying for this in cash and then paying my family back at their low bond rate of 6.5% (prime -2%).
The property will be rented out for R5500. The expenses on the property (rates and levys) are R1800. So the rental income would be R3700pm. This R3700 as well as another R4300 will be paid monthly to my parents (total R8000pm). ...
Hi Tim, We are two employers that works in a small company, and after one and a half years we found out that our employer did not pay or fill out the necessary documentation for our tax. We would like to sort this out ourselves as soon as possible - where do we start? Will there be any penalties? How can we work out what this will be? We both started working for the company after University. Personally I break even every month after medical aid contributions, student debt, rent etc. My co-worke...
I'm getting confused with regard of submiting tax return. If you earn more then R63556 you to submit your return and on the other side if your remuneration is R250000 you may not subtmit a income tax return. Can you clarify that for me please?
I have submitted tax returns for 2011, 2012 and 2013 to get it all up to date. 2013 was not audited and they owed me R3600. 2011 and 2012 I was also owed money, but had to submit supporting documents as they had doubled the medical aid amount for sum reason. The Status says the documents have been received but take up to 5 days to be assessed. Today I received a Refund of R600 and they took R3 000 as an Admin Penalty Fee. A bit extreme as I had received a letter saying the penalty fee would only...
When a spouse dies (it was after the tax year), is the spouse entitled to claim this? If so, would it need to go through the estate or would it go directly to the spouse? This with being married "in community of property"
I am part of a CC and work for another company as well, what I would like to know is, when I do my tax return it asks me if I am a member of a CC and then asks me for my personal assets and my interest in the CC, Could you please elaborate on this, as I don't know how this affects my return.
We have been living in Australia since 2011 so are non-residents in South Africa for income tax purposes. We are registered tax payers in Australia. When eFiling and creating my ITR12 SA tax return, do I click yes to the button saying that I have been unemployed so that I can create a nil return? Can I do this each year? Do I need to declare interest of R300 earned in South Africa - I have already declared this in my Australian return. Older posts →← Newer posts16171819202122232425262728293031
