I am permanently employed but have recently started a different business on the side as a sole proprietor ( but the "Company" has its own bank account). Please advise whether I need to register as a provisional taxpayer for this business, and if so, do I need an accountant to do the process and claim back any deductions?

If you earn income from running your own business then yes, you should register for provisional tax and pay tax 2-3 times per year on your net income. You can register for provisional tax on SARS eFiling.
