Some consultants at SARS says I am allowed to have three travel codes on my IRP5, namely 3701, 3702 & 3703. Other SARS officials says it's not permitted! Who is correct and why?

No you cannot, you should not have code 3703 as this is for non-taxable reimbursive allowance which is not allowed if you receive a travel allowance which is source code 3701.

Ok thanks for the reply! It seems that my friend, which also had three codes, was submitted with no issues, while my submission went to audit and SARS took away one of my codes (3703) so that I only have 3701 & 3702. When they took away 3703, they added that amount to code 3702, which now results in me owing SARS money.

Are they allowed to just "remove" 3703 the way they did?

Thanks again Tim!

Yes, it is incorrect to have both as there is no non-taxable amount if you receive both a travel allowance and a reimbursive travel amount. Do you owe them overall, or just on the new assessment, there is a second paragraph on the new ITA34 which has your overall balance.
