He is able to claim any expense related to his earning that commission including the petrol, depreciating the car used and any other relatable expense. He must keep a logbook however.

1. Can he claim for gifts to clients?

2. Can he claim for entertaining clients? eg. movie tickets.

3. Can he claim car insurance expense?

4. Can he claim for stationery?

What type of income does he earn that movie tickets would be considered entertainment? SARS may not look kindly on this. Gifts which are reasonable can be claimed along with business stationery and business car insurance.

His entertainment includes taking clients to lunch or supper. And buying food vouchers at a restaurant. And giving gifts such as movie tickets.

As long as he can justify that to SARS then it would be deductible as it is in the production of income.
