Course overview

SARS' Filing season ‘21 has begun!

Finding ourselves in the midst of a pandemic, working from home (WFH) has become the new normal for many individuals. WFH brings about incurring certain costs and expenses for individuals in executing their work responsibilities.

  • Which of these home/private expenses should be considered by individuals?
  • Have you considered claiming the private expenses relating to home cleaning services, garden maintenance, residential security levies, and many more for purposes of taxation?
  • Does the situation change for salaried individuals (who have never been able to claim personal expenses for tax) when compared to individuals conducting their business from home?
  • How should individuals claim WFH expenses in a way that avoids, and not evades, tax and keeps SARS content?

Join us for this CPD event where Carmen Westermeyer CA(SA) answers the above questions and provides clarity on the tax consequences of WFH expenses.
