If out of the country for longer than 183 days, what portion of my income is exempt from tax?
Posted 19 June 2013 under
I worked for a South African company (for 1 year), and did most of my work in another country, where I meet the 183 day & 60 consecutive day requirement. My question is: I earned a basic salary, plus allowances for being in another country, e.g. food allowance, transport, accommodation, etc. These allowances were paid together with my salary. Based on my total income from the company - what portion of this will be taxed and what will be exempt?
The portion that will be exempt is the portion that you were out of the country for, so you would take your income and divide it by the number of days in and out of the country and you will be taxed accordingly.
