Hi Tim,

I have been working in Dubai since 1 January 2011 and would like to know do I need to declare my Dubai income on my tax return? I have only been back to South Africa once for 28 days in August 2012. I am working for a local Dubai company, with an open ended contract.

For the last 2 tax years I have submitted my tax return, declaring my South African sourced income, interest and rental income.

Is this the correct way or do I still need to declare my Dubai income and will my Dubai income be taxable?

Kind regards!

Your Dubai income will not be taxable as you spend longer than the required days out of South Africa for tax purposes. Continue submitting the way you do, it is easier administratively as well.
