What supporting documents do I need to add if I claim for cellphone depreciation. If I use my phone for mainly business but I pay for the contract not my employer?

Have you been asked to submit supporting documents?

Yes I was. Or should I just leave it out and resubmit?

You can show them the invoice from the cell company, but SARS are very sticky with this sort of depreciation, so I would include a picture of the phone as well and a letter from the cell company stating the actual value of the handset which you used to calculate the depreciation on.
