FAQ: I am not a South African resident and I work in South African for a foreign government, what are the tax implications?

The remuneration paid to any domestic or private servants of the employees who work for a foreign government in South Africa is also exempt from normal tax provided that the domestic or private servant is not a South African citizen and is not ordinarily resident in South Africa.

The exemption is not applicable to any other income (e.g. interest income or rental income) that the person of a foreign government may earn while working in South Africa.
