My Mother is going to inherit money from an estate in Australia and will receive the money end Feb next year. What tax implications will there be for her here in South Africa? She is a South African citizen.
She will not have to pay any tax as the money received is not considered taxable. The estate itself will be taxed in Australia. The only time there may be a consequence is if she herself set up a trust and then put it off shore and never paid tax on those assets.
