Do you work for a South African company and receive your salary in SA? How long have you been working overseas for?

You would need to obtain a letter from your employer stating that you worked overseas and how much was earned during that period. You would also need to produce your Passport copies showing when you were in and out of SA. Please answer our questions on foreign income as exempt to see if you qualify for the income to be exempt.
