Paying a relative for stuff from SA

(1/1)

Zedd:
Hi all.  Because I'm too cheap to approach a tax expert, I thought I'd ask for advice from here first.  My parents send me stuff from SA every now and again (approximate value of R1200).  I recompense them and they don't make any profit.  Now SARS and the SA bank is asking about the origins of the money, even though I put "family" on the bank remittance.
Does anyone have experience in this matter?  Can one call SARS directly and ask advice?

yusuf:
Sheesh, I do the same, but I transfer into my own account on the SA end, and then to family.
I am following this!
