I work for a multi-national company and I am home based. I would like to find out, when I travel into the office for meetings, can I claim that mileage as business travel? Also, just for interest sake, would it be different if I was a salary earner and I did receive a travel allowance?
I got a new job and the new company is paying me one month's salary as relocation allowance. I understand that this is taxed, but can I have any tax deductions if I can prove actual relocation expenses?
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 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?
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.
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?
Will monthly maintenance claims by ex-spouse as per a successfully lodged divorce order against my pension fund be taxable in the hands of my ex-spouse, or deemed as income for myself? Will it be treated as exempt from normal tax?
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'm a SA resident and work on a cruise ship as a waiter for a company that travels all over the world. Most of my income is derived through gratuity from passengers. How would this relate to the new tax law for foreign income mentioned in the latest budget speech affect us? Will I be subjected to pay tax on the gratuity I earn?
I work from home and make approximately R25000/month. I don't do much traveling and I manage everything from my desk. I service one company only- I'm basically working for myself. They don't cover any tax etc. and I receive this payment monthly. What's the best way to deal with the Tax?
