South Africa arrivers

South Africa is a resident-based tax system, which means residents are taxed on their worldwide incomes. Tax planning is therefore an important element of coming to South Africa and advice should be taken as early as possible to ensure you are well prepared in advance of your arrival.

Moore Stephens can advise on South African tax residency for both you, your spouse and dependants, including maintaining tax residence outside South Africa where this is desired for one member of the family, or determining the date on which you became resident in South Africa for tax purposes.

We can also assist with your tax compliance, filing tax returns with SARS for you and your family and any domestic staff.
