Hi, I'm trying to figure out when I need to submit my first tax return. I moved to South Africa on 30th January 2015 and started working on 9th February 2015. No other income other than salary from employer. When is my first tax return due please?

What were your earnings for Feb 2015?

The 2016 filing season (i.e for 1 March 2015 - 28 Feb 2016) opens 1 July 2016 and then you will have until 30 Nov 2016 to file this tax return.

If those were your only earnings in South Africa for the 2015 tax year (i.e. 1 March 2015 - 28 Feb 2015) there's no need to file a tax return for 2015 as you were below the threshold of R73,650. You will need to file one for the 2016 tax year though by 30 November 2016.

Let TaxTim assist you with this process to ensure it is submitted completed and accurately.
