I am employed by an non-profit organisation based in the UK. I am a permanent resident of SA and I work from home. I receive my salary from the UK (monthly, with payslips) in GBP every month and I would like to know what I need to do to pay tax and what documents are required for SARS. Do I do a normal tax return?

Do they deduct tax in the UK?

No, they do not deduct tax in the UK. The agreement is that I sort out my tax payment in SA

Then you would need to register as a provisional taxpayer. You can read our article about What is Provisional Tax? How and when?

IF you receive the funds in SA and it gets translated into RANDS then you can use that amount otherwise you would need to translate at the SARS Exchange Rates

You can deduct all expense related to your income earned.
