I am about to retire at age 60 years, with two main streams of income, i.e. proceeds from Provident Fund and retirement annuities which I plan on putting in a Living Annuity and discretionary(after tax) saving proceeds. I understand the income from the living annuity will be taxed at PAYE rates. How is the income from my discretionary savings taxed, in retirement, e.g. I invest the discretionary savings in unit trusts and take an annual income from that which I place in my Money Market account to supplement the income from the Living Annuity?

The interest will be taxed above the exemption free portion of R23 500 per year and the remainder added to your other income and taxed all together.
