What is the source of the foreign income? Business related, interest, dividends?

I'm working for a SA company abroad so this would be my main income. Business related?

If your company continues to pay your salary and it is for work done out of South Africa then this income may be exempt from tax if you are our of SA for longer than 183 days and 60 of those are continuous.

You would disclose this income under, "amounts not considered taxable", it is the 2 block and relates to section 10(1)(o)
