Hi Tim. I was given functional training by the govt to the tune of R1,2 mil. In return I had to work it back over 13 years as part of the training bond. I left with 4 years to go. I now owe R350k. I will attempt to pay it back in lump sum as the interest they are charging is at prime. When I pay back the money via EFT is this tax deductible?

Unfortunately not, it is essentially a loan made to you by the business and cannot be claimed for tax purposes.
