I get an allowance of R48 000 p.a and I incured costs of R75 000 inlcusive of the lease payment for the vehicle in my name. I also incured personal expenses of R765 not recovered from the medical aid. The SARS calculator retuned R9885. I dont think thats right.

It would depend on the mileage that you do which is the ultimate factor in determining the refund from a travel allowance claim. There is a formula which then gives a rand value and is multiplied by the number of km's used for business as a percentage of the total of mileage.
