I own a consulting company and have been contracted to do work oversees. I expect to be out of the country for more than 183 days including a period exceeding 60 consecutive days.
I believe I am eligible for the tax exemption on my income for the period. However I am unsure if I am defined as an independent contractor? I pay myself a monthly salary from the company and therefore I believe I should be regarded as an employee and not an independent contractor.
Would SARS ask for proof of my being away from the country, if so what information would they require?
