I receive a gross amount of R7000 a month from my employer.
Privately I pay medical aid and money to a Retirement annuity.

If I submit proof of this to my employer, can he reduce PAYE payments/deductions from my salary, taking into account these allowable deductions.

If my employer can do this does it then exclude me from having to file a tax return.

You can do this, however employers are very reluctant to do so as it messes with their payroll systems.
