Concerning Medical Expenditures: Say I went to the GP Dr in January 2015, Medical Aid did not cover and got the bill of Rxxx in post. My Question: If I only paid the bill in August 2015, do I include the claim for 2014/2015 tax return or the next year 2015/2016. Regards

You need to include the bill when you paid it for tax purposes as SARS in theory wants to see proof of payment if they request supporting documentation.
