I am giving my son R100,000 and putting it into a fixed deposit account to save. I know this is the maximum donation I can give to him without me paying tax. If I also give him an allowance of R1500 per month for pocket money into his current account and this is obviously spent every month on necessities does this count towards the R100,000 allowance?

Pocket money has never really been considered a donation and SARS shouldn't have a problem with this.
