My dad wants to help us with our house bond by paying R100 000 into our bond account. Does this have any tax implications?

This would be a donation - it is not taxable in your hands but would need to be declared in your tax return as an "amount considered non-taxable". Donations tax is payable by the donor (i.e. your dad) at 20% on amounts greater than R100,000 per year. Please read our blog on Donations Tax for further details.
