I was employed by a UAE company from March 2008 to Sept 2015. I did not emigrate to UAE and always had the intention of tax returning to SA. I was never more than 30 days in total in SA when visiting family before I left for UAE again to continue employment. Will my employment income earned for this period be taxable in SA? Where do I include this on my tax returns when completing them for SARS?

Based on what you have described, it sounds like this foreign income would be exempt in South Africa. Please work through the questions: Can I claim a portion of my foreign income as exempt? and follow the instructions on the bottom of the page which explains where to declare on your tax return.
