Pension Fund Contributions

Under the "Retirement" section of the tax return on TaxTim, it says "Did you make monthly contributions to a Pension Fund, Retirement Annuity Fund or a Provident Fund OTHER THAN the contributions you already entered before?"

I am on a CTC and only contribute to a pension fund via my Employer. These contributions are therefore not reflected on my PAYE certificate. I have therefore not entered any contributions in the "PAYE 5 Employer Tax Certificate" section of TaxTim (referred to above). Do I now need to enter separately any contributions to the pension fund in the "Retirement" section?

No additional entry is required, as the contributions as part of CTC reduces you taxable income every month. So the income declared has already been reduced.
