Event Details

Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) showcases the trend of South Africans becoming global citizens by nature, being more mobile in a worldwide economy.

Between 2006 and 2016, 94 760 South Africans have emigrated. In 2018, 900 000 people born in South Africa were living abroad for one year or longer. This begs the question - how does South Africa treat these global citizens from a tax perspective?

It is clear that different tax requirements apply to South African tax residents, non-tax residents, South Africans employed by foreign companies in South Africa or South African companies employing foreign employees in a foreign country.

There are so many variables and different sources of income and employment that it certainly needs to be unpacked, especially with the 2021/2022 tax season in sight, when the amendment to the Income Tax Act that forms part of the Taxation Laws Amendment Bill of 2017, will be fully enacted.

Join us for this very informative session in which we will not only unpack the Expat taxes, but also discuss various other forms of foreign employment and/or working abroad.
