If I earn income as a sole proprietor for doing admin and accounting work am I considered to be running a business?

Yes, you would be considered to be running a business. If your total earnings for the year are over the tax threshold of R73,650 per annum, you would need to register for provisional tax and complete a Provisional Return twice a year.
