Hi - I am from Europe, working in the RSA for a South African employer since early in the 2014 tax year. During the period between March 1st 2013 and my arrival/start of work in the RSA, I had no salary, but received an amount in unemployment benefits from the European country I then lived in. Are those benefits taxable in South Africa (as income or otherwise), and if so, under what heading should I enter them for my 2014 tax return? Foreign Income, some other category?

No those are not taxable in South Africa.
