SARS Increases Its Collection Power

The income tax system in South Africa has a residence-based system of taxation, which means all South African tax residents are taxed on their worldwide income.

South Africans working abroad may be at risk of double taxation due to country specific jurisdictions. Foreign revenue authorities may tax you incorrectly under the assumption that you are tax resident in that specific country.

To avoid double taxation, a Tax Residency Certificate in South Africa can be provided to the relevant foreign revenue authority, which Certificate will prove that you are resident in South Africa for tax purposes and that South Africa has the first and only taxing right on your worldwide income.

Our team of Tax and Legal Specialists have the necessary skills and tools to assist in obtaining a South African Tax Residency Certificate on your behalf.
