You receive two incomes from 2 different sources, therefore you are liable to register for provisional tax and to submit the applicable tax returns.

Please refer to our following blogs for more information regarding provisional taxes: Am I a Provisional taxpayer? and What is Provisional Tax? How and when? .

You will need to declare the foreign income and tax credits on your income tax return and will need to bring it into account when calculating your provisional taxes.
