I am currently a teacher in Vietnam, I have been here since July 2015, and have been earning foreign currency. I am about to start transferring money into my RSA account for some debit orders. I would like to find out- how does my tax work if I am earning abroad? I do not want to be penalized in any way. I am a registered tax user and I have enjoyed tax returns every year since 2012.

You will not be taxed on your income earned in Vietnam, in South Africa, and you can transfer it to South Africa without any risks of paying penalties.
