I just want to find out with regards to car allowances. I switched employment in June 2014 and did not have access to my kilometers claimed at my previous employer. I started working at my previous employer again in January of this year and found my old information. It seems like I might have submitted incorrect information on half of the year for car allowance. I am currently being audited manually, and do not know what to do, please advise?
My workers eat lunch daily and I pay for it out of the business profit. Can I deduct this amount and how much of it can I deduct? They eat about R100. 00 worth of food and drink per day and I keep all these slips. Can this be deducted under "entertaining"?
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?
After submitting my ITR12, I received an ITA34 in which 'a letter containing further instructions' is mentioned. "Please note, however, that the information provided by you in your income tax return does not match the information in the possession of SARS or your tax return has been selected for verification. Attached you will find a letter containing further instructions for you to resolve this. Please note that any refund which may be due will be withheld pending finalisation of this matter. According to the information you declared in your income tax return, you were liable to pay provisional tax for this year of assessment...
Context: I am paid by a foreign employer in USD and will be processing tax payments in my own capacity. I understand from previous questions that I should register as a Provisional Tax Payer. I have two questions: 1) Is it possible to make monthly payments to SARS instead of at the 2 periods in time? If yes, how? 2) I will likely have to work outside the country for period of 183 days/ 61 days continuously - how do I go about getting the refund/ processing my tax given this?
I am due to become a SA tax resident in the next tax year if I stay (not my intention to stay, but may become a SA tax resident due to physical presence test). I have income from Uk properties which is declared on my uk tax return and uk tax is paid. I still have some net income. Questions:
1. How is this noted on my SA tax return. Ie after uk tax is paid? Or before with a credit for tax paid? But will be paying tax twice?
I am self employed and work from home. My wife helps me with admin part time. Am I able to pay her a reasonable market fee and deduct this from my income. My wife also contracts for other companies. What the implications for preparing tax returns.
I am sharing a secretary between me and a colleague. We are working in the same office. We pay her a total of R8000 p. M (R4000 each). Obviously PAYE should be deducted based on her total yearly income (R96000) and paid to SARS before the 7th of each month. Is it fine for me and my colleague to split the PAYE and UIF contributions and pay those separately to SARS, and issue her one payslip between us? If so, does she need two IRP5s issued?
I left a permanent job and started a freelance design business in July 2015. My Personal income tax for last year is up to date. I need to start paying tax on my business but have no idea how this works. I am using my personal bank account to receive payments from clients for design services. I am not yet breaking even and can barely pay my bills. I am not making a profit yet. I have no idea how tax works. I need help and wondered if signing up to TaxTim would be the way to go? I would need to b...
I am permanently employed but have recently started a different business on the side as a sole proprietor ( but the "Company" has its own bank account). Please advise whether I need to register as a provisional taxpayer for this business, and if so, do I need an accountant to do the process and claim back any 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?
I earn a salary of R10 000. 00, My employer submits the paye. I have started a business sole trader in August 2015. Can I register for the business on my current tax number and what do I need to fill in.
I bought a car cash before getting my current job. I receive a car allowance at my current job and am not willing to change my car anytime soon. Is that an issue with SARS? Is that going to affect my tax, if so how?
We receive a fuel benefit which is indicated as an income ( this in my mind will put me into the next bracket ). I am taxed on the higher income, then the very same amount that has been used for fuel is shown as a deduction. I don't understand this can you please explain. I don't see the benefit of a fuel card.
