How many of the tax allowances and deductions available to your business do you actually use? 
Every business has the potential to save thousands of rands every year, but very few make the most of this potential. 
1. General business expenses
As you run your business, you incur general expenses. You can actually get SARS to give you the money back for these. 
For example, if you buy a new laptop for the purpose of running your company, you can claim the cost of that laptop back. You can do this by claiming depreciation on the laptop. If it's less than R7 000, you can claim the full amount back at the end of that tax year. 
2. Gifts and prize money
If you like to woo clients by showering them with gifts, you can actually claim this as a marketing expense. After all, you incurred that expense while trying to bring in new business.
If you want to find out about the other 45 allowances and deductions, check out 47 Allowance and Deductions. It has everything you need to know about claiming your money back from SARS legally.
