Can I claim on my medical aid payments as a deduction being self employed when my husband is the primary member? The payments cover both of us. Lastly we have a life insurance policy which includes disability and dreaded disease. Can I deduct this payment or a portion of it?
Unfortunately the life policy cannot be deducted. Your husband will need to claim the medical as he is the main member. He will get the benefit for both of you which would be the same as if you made the claim.
