The employer portion of the medical aid paid is a perk and is fully taxable in your hands. You are still entitled to the medical aid tax credit of R242 per month however.

A bonus is taxed in a few ways, the most common being added to your monthly salary and then taxed according to the tables which often results in a refund at year end.

Alternatively your employer will take your marginal rate of tax and multiply that by the bonus in order to work out the taxes owing.
