#WATCH I Join Roné Loubser as she focuses on foreign employment earnings of the South African resident and the cessation of tax residency.


This webinar will be presented in two parts. The first part discusses a practical approach to deal with expat tax at SARS, with the focus on foreign employment earnings of South African residents. We will discuss relevant aspects to the SARS requirements as well as the implications of South African tax when submitting an income return to SARS.

During the second part of this webinar, we will deal with the cessation of tax residency and the process to facilitate a change in resident status through SARS efficiently. We will discuss the SARS requirements for becoming a non-resident and the resulting capital gain effect thereof. Potential pitfalls and suggested work-arounds will be highlighted, based on practical experience gained over the last couple of years.
