Zakaat on accumulated amount

Question ID: 26994

Asalaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi Wabarakatu.

Dear Mufti, please clarify the following on how to calculate zakaat ?
example : Last year I had R 10 000.00, Shukran to Allah SWT this year I have R 20 000.00.
Do I pay 2.5 on the entire amount or only on the R 10 000.00 earned in the past year.
Previously I have paid on the entire amount.
Fi amaanillah
