Does Sirago provide tax certificates?

No, we do not provide tax certificates as gap cover does not form part of your annual Medical Scheme Fees Tax Credit which is used to reduce the normal tax a person pays.


Par 2.2.3 of the SARS Guide on the Determination of Medical Tax Credits (Issue 10) states:

"Certain medical-related arrangements are entered into between taxpayers and entities that

are not regulated by the MS Act. Products offered by long-term or short-term insurers, which

can include, for example, gap cover or hospital insurance, do not qualify for an MTC

because they are not paid to a registered medical scheme. Certain bargaining councils10

establish and operate medical aid funds.11 If these funds are not registered under the

MS Act, the contributions do not qualify for an MTC."
