The invoice your bank gave you is a statement of all the payments that you made towards your bond. You are unfortunately not allowed to deduct the interest or the instalment you paid on your bond for tax purpose as you are using the property as your primary residence. Should you earn rental income on the property, only then will you be able to claim a deduction for the interest against the rental income. The tax benefit you get as someone staying in the house is that when you sell the property you are not liable for any tax on the profit if the profit is less than R2mil.
