If I am to work in Swaziland for a South African based company earning ZAR , how would they tax me , I believe if you work out of the country for more than 63 days consecutively and for a minimum of 183 days p.a then earnings are tax exempt ?
I will be permanently based in Swaziland , I have spoken to SARS and they advised that it makes no difference if I say here in RSA or Swaziland , the tax will remain the same as the company I work for is in RSA .... is this information correct?

That is not correct, the company will still take off the tax and you will be able to claim it back at the end of the year as you meet the definition of a s10(1)(o)(ii) employee.
