DID YOU KNOW THAT WHEN YOU LOCUM WITH MULTIPLE AGENCIES, YOU RUN THE RISK OF PAYING MORE TAXES?
Yes, you heard right!
When you locum with multiple agencies, your income is taxed according to a fixed percentage bracket. This means that since agencies are unaware of how much income you are making in total, you may run into the risk of being undertaxed - resulting in incorrect monthly tax payments being paid over to SARS. This then becomes your responsibility to amend when you file your tax return - which could become costly.

DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN AVOID PAYING EXTRA SHORTFALL PENALTIES WHEN YOU ONLY LOCUM WITH US?
Doing your taxes correctly can become tricky when you’re earning income from multiple sources. It becomes even trickier when you have been undertaxed or taxed incorrectly by other agencies. This means that when you’re submitting your income tax return, you could receive an uncomfortable tax shortfall.
IS YOUR AGENCY TAX COMPLIANT?
The unfortunate reality is that it has become common practice for agencies and employers to deduct taxes from you without paying them over to SARS. If your taxes are not paid over to SARS, it then becomes your responsibility to sort out that tax bill at the time of submitting your income tax return.
IS YOUR AGENCY PAYING YOUR UIF AND TAXES CORRECTLY?
Signing up with us will ensure that your tax payments are correct and successfully paid over to SARS.
At Immploy, we understand the importance of having your time and your money work for you!
This means that when you work for us, you’ll receive ongoing tax support at a reduced rate - available for both existing and new locums.

Taxes are one of the main sources of revenue for government systems. This revenue is generated from individuals, businesses and organisations. The revenue is used to maintain public infrastructure, services and programs. The South African Revenue Service is known as SARS – South African Revenue Service.
A taxpayer is an individual, person, business, or organisation who is liable to pay tax on their income.
Being Tax Compliant means that a taxpayer has met their legal obligations by submitting all their tax returns and paying all taxes due.
Income Tax is the amount of tax that is paid from your taxable income. The amount to be paid varies on an income bracket – based on income tiers. For example, if you earn up to R216 200 a year, 18% of your income will become taxable.
UIF/THE UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE FUND
UIF refers to the Unemployment Insurance Fund of South Africa. Your employer makes contributions to this fund on your behalf. This is taken off from your taxable income. You will then be able to claim your funds should you experience job loss or retrenchment.
Tax support is a service that you can access to assist you with becoming Tax Compliant.
This refers to the 12-month period starting at the beginning of March and ending at the end of February for the purposes of an individual’s financial year for tax purposes.
Tax shortfall refers to an inadequate amount of tax paid to SARS. Therefore, there is still an outstanding amount of tax that needs to be paid for an individual, business or organisation to be tax compliant - within a specific tax year.
A tax penalty is an administrative non-compliance penalty for failing to adequately submit your annual tax return.
An Understatement refers to something being smaller/less than it really is.
SARS issues an Understatement Penalty when your taxable income declared on provisional tax returns, is less than the final taxable income amount declared on your income tax return.
