I get a monthly salary on a set day every month but I get it in full, without any tax deductions. It is my responsibility to arrange for the payment of tax with SARS. Do I have to register as a provisional tax payer in order to pay tax?
Yes... the position ticks all the boxes for formal employment. I have to complete a timesheet but it is still regular hours from 08h00 to 17h00. I have an employment contract and not a commissioning contract, and they even contribute to my medical aid. I have business cards identifying them as my employer etc. Maybe I should also mention that I work for an embassy? Don't know if that makes any difference.

The employer has a requirement to deduct all the required PAYE and UIF from your earnings as you are a salaried employee.
