I'm renting out property in Cape Town and I stay in Johannesburg. When travelling down to Cape Town for maintenance/inspections purposes, do I claim the actual petrol money spent or the SARS rate of R3.29?
I wanted to enquire approximately how much it would cost for me to do my Tax Returns? Just an estimation. It would be just for me. Straight forward Gross Salary plus medical aid. No other claims such as commission, mileage, petrol etc.
Before paying the fee I just want to make sure you'll be able to help me. From March to July. I earned a normal salary but from August I earn a basic and commission. As I sales rep I'm able to write off wear and tear on my vehicle but obviously only from August. Same goes for my laptop etc. will your system be able to take this into account?
I am full time employed but I have earned additional income by lecturing a couple of hours during the year at a different employer. This employer did not deduct any PAYE. The employer has paid me according to the hours that I have invoiced them. Should I answer the question about whether I'm an Independent Contractor as "Yes"?
I just wanted to find out if you deal with business tax? I've recently started a company and would just like to know what SARS will want to see in respect to my accounting when I file a tax return? Essentially, what is the bare minimum if they audit?
I have a pay as you go cellphone that I bought cash. Thus I unfortunately do not have monthly statements to determine an exact break between business and personal use. I spend about R300 pm on airtime and I receive a cellphone allowance of R750 pm from my employer. How do I calculate and show the depreciation amount and do I need a letter of consent if the allowance is shown on my salary slips?
I don't receive a travel allowance, but I'm on a company vehicle lease scheme. It assumes I receive fuel, which I don't. I also do business mileage and I have source code 3802 on my IRP5. What should I do?
I'm a commission earner. I joined a company in January and I didn't earn any commission from January to 28 February. My previous IRP5 shows me working at that previous company for 10 months. Do I need an IRP5 with zero income on it for the 2 months at the new company? Would anything need to be submitted to show that I was employed for the 10 months at the first company and 2 months at the present company = the full 12 Months? Also, does the new company have to upload anything so that...
I've gone from working for an employer to freelancing and now I'm working on a contract basis. I'm not taxed on my contract income. All I do is send an invoice and they pay me and deduct nothing off that. I'd like to still pay SARS the PAYE, is that possible? (I have my own retirement fund).
How do I claim petrol on tax? For the previous tax year I've kept a detailed petrol log through your app and I've been using my own petrol card and claiming back. I do receive a travel allowance. The company has now given us petrol cards, do I still need to keep a log to claim or can I not claim because the company is paying?
I've been working for the past 5 years and have never claimed back tax. I have all my IRP5 certificates since I started working. I have no travel allowance, I usually pay for everything with my own finances. I'm registered for tax with SARS, but I'm not sure if I'm registered on SARS eFiling.
Can I charge VAT while waiting for my VAT registration to come through? How can I legally show VAT on a invoice to a customer while waiting for my VAT number? The company registration and income tax is done.
My employer doesn't reimburse me for traveling in between the office and our sites. I don't have a company car but I drive about 92KM per day between the office and on of our sites. Would it be possible to claim KMs from SARS for the use of my private car? And the company doesn't provide a cellphone allowance but I'm required to use my phone a lot at work. I receive no allowance and I'm not a commission earner. Can I claim for the contract I was forced to take?
I submitted my 2016 tax return using my actual cost on my travel expenses. How can I have it changed to fixed cost as my business travel was about 16000km whilst my actual cost was only R399.00? My tax return was audited by SARS and I've disputed on these grounds several times as well as gone to SARS twice. I've been told that it's possible to have this changed and the consultant at SARS has requested it be done on their system but no change so far. The latest statement still reflects only R217,...
I have a mobile phone; laptop; tablet and home office furniture which I use for my small business. I bought them four years ago, but I've never depreciated them because this is my first year of business. Can I depreciate them now even if I don't have the invoices anymore? And, if I don't depreciate them can I just record it as a company asset? These IT equipment were bought second hand and some are old.
I work in IT and I get paid my normal salary every month and on occasion. I'm also involved with projects where I earn commission. I don't actually know how my commission is calculated, but I'd like to know how I can get more of my commission paid to me instead of being taxed so highly. My Minimal expenses are i.e. calls and some driving around but I don't claim for it because it's usually a very small claim.
