I have a sole prop who earns R3m per annum. To reduce his PAYE I have suggested he takes out an RA.
What is the maximum he can contribute for Feb 2014 so as to maximise his tax position.

For retirement annuity fund contributions the limit is 15% of gross non-retirement-funding-employment income which essentially is all the income earned which is not allocated to a pension fund or provident fund. For a sole prop it will be all the income he has earned. You can take out an RA for February for the full amount in one contribution.
