If you bring money into South Africa and invest it somewhere earning interest then you will only be liable to pay tax once you become a tax resident or you spend longer than 183 days in South Africa.

If you do become liable to pay tax then, if you are under the age of 65 and earn no other income, then you will only pay tax on interest earned above R86 356 each tax year.
