I am just starting out a part time photography business from home. My income isn't a set amount each month. Do I only pay tax the months I am over the tax bracket? And do I pay tax on my total income - or only the amount after I pay everything - such as medical aid, insurance, business costs etc. Also, because this is my only source of income - do I only pay income tax or?
Assuming you are going to not register a separate business and run it as a sole trader you would pay income tax in your personal name. You would need to split your incomes and expenses related to the "business" from your personal expenses. Treat them as if they are different. You would complete the "local income" section of your ITR12 - income tax return for the business related income and expenses.
