Hi! My husband gets paid fortnightly, the last 2 weeks he's worked 58hrs overtime(1.5) and 7hrs doubletime. His normal rate is @R62p/h. We've heard some rumours about 'supertax' where they deduct more than normally. If that's true will you please provide me with a method to work this out. Thanks.
Your husband will have his entire income earned for the 2 weeks multiplied by 26 and then applied to the SARS tax rates 2014 which the tax is calculated on. Thereafter the tax is divided by 26 again and deducted as PAYE. Any over tax will be refunded when he files his tax return for the period.
