Hi there. The 2014-2015 tax year will be my second tax season as a self employed 'freelance' architect. Last year when I submitted my tax at SARS they said I do not need to register for provisional tax and that they would 'let me know when I needed to' so I just submitted a summary of my income and expenses to SARS at the normal tax time and they verified everything and all was ok. This year I am earning double what I did last year and feeling a bit concerned that I may have missed the magic line which crosses me over into a provisional tax payer?

Basically I would like to educate myself about this whole system - at what point do I need to register as a provisional tax payer? Also where can I find information on rates for self employed tax payer so I don't submit blind? Would TimTax be able to help me file? Thanks
