Hi Tim,I submitted my tax return today through efiling, but after going through your blog I realised I did some things incorrectly, as I was out of the country for more than 6 months working on a company project. Is there any way that we can redo the return to include this?

You can click on 'request correction' on the Income Tax Working page and redo your return. Did you have a contract in place with your employer stating you will be working out of the country?

Thanks Tim,

In my employment contract it states I will be travelling when necessary, do you mean a contract that states exactly how long I was out of the country?

You need to get a letter from your employer stating how many days you were out of the country for work purposes and what income you earned and the related PAYE. You will submit this to SARS when filing your return along with copies of your passport. (if you are audited) take the amount that you see as income on this letter and insert it into the block for s(10)(1)(o)ii under the 'other deductions' page of the return. Request the correction first so that SARS doesn't process the other return, while you await the letter.
