I'm in the process of accepting a proposal for work in SA. I have SA and UK passports. Currently based in the UK. Moving to Cape Town. Attempting to prepare/research my options to offset a R2,,.00 annual salary. If permanently employed, It seems that I will pay roughly 50% income tax on this 2 million rand salary, according to existing bank calculators. I may have the option to engage as a consultant rather than permanent employment to offset taxes. However, I'm also aware that a permanent salary will include, pension, private medical cover and additional benefits. I would like advice regarding options in order to make an informed decision. Is anyone able to assist? Kind regards, .
