I am a freelancer but I earned under the R70 700 threshold. Do I have to register for provisional tax? Some people have told me that I have to submit a provisional tax return anyway while reflecting on the return that my taxable income was zero. Seems stupid.
It is best to do because staying compliant with SARS benefits you by being able to provide a clean tax position to banks and other authorities that want to check you are tax compliant. Although you won't be paying any tax it just makes you 100% compliant.

Thank you. So I would just reflect on there that my taxable income was zero?

Yes and submit it like that.
