I foreigners start to work in South Africa & earn South African source income, say, from February 2016. Will they receive their entire tax rebate for 2016 based on only the 1 month's salary? This would imply that they will obviously NOT pay ANY taxes on a salary of up to R73,650 for the month of Feb 2016. Is this correct or should the tax rebate of R13,257 be pro-rated to 1 of 12 months, because they only worked for 1 month of the 12 in the tax year?

The rebate is not pro-rated. The tax threshold is R73,650 for the year so if you earned below this during the year, you won't pay tax. Please make use of our SARS income tax calculator
