I receive a monthly cellphone allowance. Under what code do I deduct the actual expenditure on my tax return on SARS eFiling? The "other" category has not historically been available to me.

I am a consultant, and I get paid a monthly salary. No commission earnings or other earnings.

Unfortunately then you will not be able to deduct the costs against this allowance, but you could deduct the depreciation of the cell phone - which would be over 3 years. You would need to demonstrate to SARS however what the split between personal and private use was.
