Hello. I work for a company where I was previously employed full time before I relocated. Now I work on a contract basis (contract renewable annually) performing tasks previously in my job description from a home office which I furnish, equip and maintain myself. I work unsupervised and submit an invoice monthly for a set number of hours worked and am paid an hourly rate. As this is my only income, the company deducts PAYE, but I pay for medical aid, retirement annuities and income protection privately. How will SARS classify my income? Do I qualify as an independent contractor? What deductions may I claim?
