I would like to know if I need to register for PAYE. I am 25 years old and a part time student. I au pair in the afternoons (R7500 a month salary) and I also do contract work for 2 companies (R1500 and R2500) salary in order to pay for my fees. One of the companies is asking me to get a tax number in order to pay me and I'm worried about doing that as my salary just about covers my expenses and expensive study fees - so I can't afford deductions.

You will need a tax number yes, unfortunately you will need to pay tax - use our SARS income tax calculator to work out how much.

Thank you. Would I only put in the R7,500....because the other two amounts are paid to me as per when I work with hourly rates. The only fixed one is the R7,500. Also I get petrol money from my mom monthly, must that be included?

Not petrol money no, you would put your expected income for the year.

My next question is UIF - must I register for this? How does it work?
