I would like to know if I can claim my tax return via people around the community who claim that they doing it for business purpose where we have to pay them 30% of the money we get after they claimed for us?

That is most likely a scam, no one should be asking money as a percentage of refunds. It is allowed, but we do not place reliance on that type of action. It may lead someone to declare illegal stuff in order to make their share much larger than it should be. Then once they have your money you are left to clean up the problems with SARS, sometimes with big penalties / fines attached.

Some people may be for real, but you should make sure of their practitioner status by checking their number on the SARS website.
