July 2014-Feb 2015 I was a recruitment consultant. I did not receive a salary, I simply paid a R5000 desk cost per month, which I believe I can claim back for. In the 8 months, I only earned 3 amounts, all adding up to approximately R40 000. How do I submit a tax return- I had no salary, I can claim for desk cost and flights, and I earned very little?

Is this the only income you earned between March 2014 and Feb 2015?

Yes.

Given that you earned below the tax threshold you do not need to file a return, however we do suggest you do nonetheless. You can complete the Local Business Income with these details of income and expenses and file, but no tax will be paid.

Thank you. I was hoping there was a way to claim back for the R20000 spent on desk cost, and the R2500 on business related flights (meeting potential clients in JHB)... But I understand that this will not be possible. Thank you for your help!

Unfortunately not since you pay no tax anyway therefore there is nothing to be refunded.
