I have been living abroad for a while, since February 2018 to be exact. I filed my tax return for the 2017/2018 financial year, as it reflected my income for the previous year, during which I was employed in South Africa. I would like to maintain an unbroken record with SARS, but I'm not sure how to file for income earned abroad. My current income is well below the R1 million limit impostor in South Africans working abroad. I will be tax returning to SA in March 2019. So, I would like to know wh...
I was living in Dubai from March 2014 up until December 2016, I however did not earn any income while living there. I then moved to Namibia, where I am currently employed and getting an income, I am a registered taxpayer in Namibia. Also, I am a registered taxpayer in South Africa because I worked there before moving to Dubai. I've received no income from South Africa since moving out of the country. I'd like to find out if I still need to submit a tax return to SARS?
I've been working outside of the country more than 6 months in a 12 month period with more than 182/60 day rule passed so that money should be tax free. If I earn in between those periods in South Africa, does that affect my tax free income that I am earning outside South Africa?
I'm filling out my 2017 tax return for Individual Return. My income is covered in part by an IRP5, and in part by a foreign deposit. Can I declare both on TaxTim? I also just bought the TaxTim Ultra package because of the foreign income, but the email says I should only use the voucher on July 1st. Have I bought the wrong product?
I'm a SA resident and work on a cruise ship as a waiter for a company that travels all over the world. Most of my income is derived through gratuity from passengers. How would this relate to the new tax law for foreign income mentioned in the latest budget speech affect us? Will I be subjected to pay tax on the gratuity I earn?
I live in Namibia, but work for a South African company. I'm a South African citizen. Under the new changes brought in with the budget, how will my tax work? I'm still working for the same company (I have been working for 7 years in total).
I'm currently staying in South Africa. I receive income from foreigners, for hunting trips outside of SA borders. I'm usually out of the country for a week or two at a time. Is this income I'm earning taxable in SA?
Good Day I would like to know who is right in this scenario: a SA resident and the SA company I work for received a construction contract in Sierra Leone, November 2015 we left with promises that there will be no tax deducted. Just before we left our SA employment was terminated and we were rehired by the newly established Sierra Leone company (same name, just now Sierra Leone ltd). We work everything according to the SARS 183/60 rule In the meantime, salary and tax deductions went on like norma...
My declared foreign income is the same as I declared as the profit for a business because of online graphic design work - I get paid in USD via Paypal and via FNB. Should I only declare this once and remove it from the business? I would hate to pay tax for twice that of my earnings! Please help, thank you.
If I work for a USA company and earn e.g. $65,000 per year and the company does not have a brand and or is not registered in South Africa, what is the tax process?
I imagine - (please correct me). I receive full amount monthly and need to register as a provisional tax payer and pay SARS normal PAYE twice per year? Note I will not be traveling more than 183 days per year. Is there a possible benefit of registering a business and paying myself from the business a lower amount?
I worked in RSA as a full time employee from 1 March 2015 until 30 September 2015. During this time, I earned R660 000. During this time, I was out of the country for 60 days, for business. From 1 October 2015 to 29 February 2016, I worked in the UK as a full time employee of a UK organisation. During this time, I earned R600 000 (in GBP). During this time, I was out of the country for 126 days.
During the full tax year, I spent 186 days outside of South Africa, of which 60 were consecutive, which means that I qualify for the exempt income provision (sec10(1)(o)(ii))...
I submitted my tax on the 1st July after which SARS requested my documents which I submitted the very same day. Then I received a notification stating my income tax has been assessed and SARS will issue a Notice of assessment. My question is how long does it take to receive the (updated) Notice of assessment from SARS.
I have an employment contract outside of SA and my employer does not deduct PAYE, do I have to be outside of SA for 183 days of which 60 must be consecutive in a tax year or just in a 12 month period (if contract is from 15 April 2015 - 15 April 2016)?
If I am working outside the country and wanted to send a large sum of money as a deposit for property within South Africa what are the Tax implications if any. I believe that because it is a large sum of money that it would need to be declared to the South African Reserve Bank beforehand.
I started working abroad in Hong Kong on 1 Jun 2014 and am comfortable meeting the 183 & 60 days requirement for the 2014/2015 & 2015/2016 SA tax year of assessments. However, I need clarification on the 2016/2017 SA tax year of assessment as I will be tax returning back to SA permanently on 30 Sept 2016. I would have met the 60 days continuous requirement, but not the 183 days, it will only be a 122 days from 1 Jun 2016 to 30 Sept 2016. Reading Income Tax Interpretation Note No. 16, specificall...

I believe I qualified for a exemption on my tax a few years ago (around 2011/2012) - out the country for more than 183 days with one trip more than 60 consecutive days all for work purposes. My tax consultant at the time said he submitted all the documents, but when I went to SARS they said they had not recieved them. I handed them in at SARS and they requested further information which I submitted. They then requested further information which I then got so frustrated I decided to give up on th...
