(R7000,00 per month)I will also need to pay my petrol with this income as the job require traveling?What do I need to apply as?will it be a tax directive or a provisional tax payer?
Do you work under the guidance and supervision of the employer?

I work on my own, I have to send photos of the stock and will see the owner of the company once a week. I can contact them at anytime for info or if I need help. I am not employed directly by them and get paid for the service I provide.
They have not provided me with anything. They are not paying my tax. I have to pay the tax. I am responsible for the tax. Do I apply for provisional tax or a tax directive etc???

You would register as a provisional taxpayer then. A tax directive is an instruction to an employer to only deduct a specific amount of tax based on a percentage. Since no tax is deducted then there is no need to apply for one.
