Unemployment Insurance Fund
If you make R 240 000 a year living in South Africa, you will be taxed R 34 297. That means that your net pay will be R 205 703 per year, or R 17 142 per month. Your average tax rate is 14.3% and your marginal tax rate is 26.0%. This marginal tax rate means that your immediate additional income will be taxed at this rate. For instance, an increase of R 100 in your salary will be taxed R 26, hence, your net pay will only increase by R 74.
A R 1 000 bonus will generate an extra R 740 of net incomes. A R 5 000 bonus will generate an extra R 3 700 of net incomes.
