Income from overseas

My wife does some occasional freelance work for a company overseas. As well as here in South Africa.
Her local freelance brings in about R3500 per month. She doesn't currently pay provisional tax as the amounts are too small. She's recently taken on some international freelance work that amounts to
about R10500 every second month or so. What are the tax implications of the international income?
Does she need to declare it and can she declare it as a donation?

Yes she needs to declare the income as it was generated while being in the country. Unfortunately she cant declare the income as a donation as it is for services rendered.
Your wife needs to register for provisional tax, kindly read our blog on What is Provisional Tax? How and when?
