Is it true that the acquisition of "small" items at a cost of less then R 7000 per item may be written off during the year of acquisition? I bought a laptop for R 6999.00 in December 2012. I am a IT contractor.

Yes you can deduct this one item as a full depreciated amount if it is less than R7000.

Is the R 7000 per item, or can it be multiple items to the limit of R 7000?

For example: Can I buy 3 items all valued at less than R 7000 and claim all of them in the same year?

Thanks Tax Tim

As long as they are not connected to one another or form part of a set then the individual assets can be written off provided each item costs less than R7000.
