I had a client here this morning. He
was too lazy to keep lost his travelling log book and therefore couldn’t claim all his business kilometers. We had to use the formula as supplied by SARS.
Had he been able to submit a logbook, he would have had a tax refund of R22 000. Since he ‘lost’ his though he will only get a refund of R900. Now there is nothing stopping him from going through his records and doing the logbook now. He has the means and the ways. However he
is too lazy doesn’t have the time? Oh my goodness!
Then right after I saw him I saw an older client who has to pay in R11 000. He had such a look of defeat on his face. Is just not right. Then this poor old Oomie (man) reversed into one of our other clients as he left.
Some days one just shouldn’t get out of bed.
