I have been employed since September 2012, even though I was not earning a taxable amount, but now I am now earning it. Looking at my payslips since the start of 2013 I found out that the one for March has got the P.A.Y.E deducted as well as U.I.F but from the next month being April I no longer get that P.A.Y.E deductions except U.IF.
Please Tim, does it mean I do not have an income tax number? I called my employer and they referred me to SARS. I can't understand this as I need this income tax number for my new employer.
You would need to call 0800 00 7277 to get your income tax number, unfortunately we cannot assist there. However how much were you earning in March and April because it should be the other way around with regards to PAYE deductions.
