My previous employer never put a travel/car allowance on my IRP5 thought I travelled more than 40000km for them in 11 months. Can this be corrected? Unfortunately the consultant who did my returns for me already submitted without informing me before submitting about this issue. What can I do?

Did they pay you this allowance despite not putting it on the IRP5?

Yes they did.
According to the consultant who did my returns for me I lost out on a substantial amount due to me because of this.

The employer will have to resubmit the IRP5 and correct it and then you can resubmit your tax return. Did you keep a logbook?

Yes I kept my log book up to date 100%.
But now according to them I just got a high basic.. but they made me aware of the travel allowance a lot. Especially when I had to use the company bakkie for a couple of weeks when my private vehicle was at the panelbeater. They never stated this on my payslip though. What can I do?

Will they not restate and resubmit the IRP5 to SARS?

They have now let me know that they have corrected the IRP5 and emailed it to me. Can I resubmit?

Yes you can, but check on eFiling if the corrected IRP5 is there as it can take some time to be updated on eFiling.
