I live in SA and have a property in the UK that I rent out. Do I pay tax on the rental income in the UK or in SA? I know I have to declare my worldwide income but just wondering in terms of the Double Tax treaty - in which country do I physically pay the tax?

You would pay the tax in SA, unless you pay tax in the UK on the rental income in which case you can use that tax to offset tax paid here. Your responsibility is to pay in SA though.
