I started freelancing 01 November 2015
I was still working until 31 October at a company that was paying my tax for me. Do I need to do my provisional taxes this month (February) or should I wait until August?

You should register for Provisional Tax now and submit a tax return in February to avoid possible penalties if you don't. If you are making less than R30 000 as a profit from Freelancing then you do not need to register as a provisional taxpayer.

Thank you :)
Is that R30 000 per month?
