I'm a sales rep. I get car allowance and am reimbursed for my mileage. Can I claim for cell and laptop if I do not get an allowance for it and I do not earn a commission? And 2nd, I have not kept any lunch slips for taken clients out for business lunches nor did I submit the slips to claim from the company. Can I use my bank statements and proof of purchase for these lunches?

Is the cellphone and laptop your own purchased device that you use for business and personal?

You can only claim entertainment expenditure which is purely business related. SARS has become very strict in this regard so you need to ensure each claim can be justified eg. you need details of who you took out, for what purpose etc.
