Hi Tim..i received R500 000 from my brother in Australia (he is an Australian Citizen) so for him that was like only 50 000 Aus dollars to help me get a deposit for a house here in RSA. For the outstanding amount I got a loan at a local bank. Which one pays the tax?

As a foreign resident he can give you money whenever he wishes. Just make sure it is not from a South African source and it was made earned and directly from Australia.

You can put it under donations in the "amounts not considered taxable" but it is not taxable.
