A crucial call to action for South African non-resident taxpayers

As a taxpayer, you may think that once you cease to be a tax resident in South Africa (commonly known as Financial Emigration), there are no further compliance requirements that you need to meet. However, that is no longer the case. The South African Revenue Service (SARS) now requires all individuals who have ceased their tax residency in South Africa to obtain a Notice of Non-Tax Residency Status Confirmation Letter and realign their non-residency status with SARS.
