I believe that UK State Pension is not taxable income in South Africa. Is that true? In particular, is it necessary to mention it at all when doing SARS eFiling?

You should include this amount under, "amounts not considered taxable", but you are right it is not taxable.

Thanks for such a prompt reply! I'm very grateful. I have more faith in you than SARS, who said it should be declared as 'Foreign Income'.
