Frequently asked questions about your tax exit from South Africa:

Why is it important to do your tax exit from South Africa?
Once you have relocated to your new home country, your tax residency in South Africa ceases automatically (in most cases). This means you will henceforth only be liable for tax in South Africa on income earned on assets left behind (e.g. rental on property). You must wrap up your tax affairs in South Africa by submitting a final tax return and notifying SARS to change your tax residency status to that of a tax non-resident.

How do I know that I am not liable for tax in South Africa?
If you are a tax resident of South Africa, who is an employee and renders employment services outside South Africa, then you are subject to tax in South Africa on your worldwide income. In most cases, tax residency ceases once you depart from South Africa on a permanent basis, i.e. you will not be deemed a tax resident any longer and not be liable for tax in South Africa.

SA expat tax: If I am not a South African tax resident, expat tax does not apply?

Do I have to do a financial emigration to change my tax status?
No, this is not necessary as financial emigration is not connected to your tax residence.

What are the tax implications when I cease to be a tax resident of South Africa?
A deemed disposal for capital gains tax purposes takes place at the time an individual ceases to be a tax resident. The individual will be deemed to have disposed of his or her worldwide assets, excluding immovable property in South Africa.

Bronwyn GoodburnCanada

“Amazing service during an especially trying year. All the ladies that assisted me were friendly, helpful, and fantastic. This service is expensive but if one has no plans to return to SA anytime sooner it does work out cheaper than a ticket home etc.”

Ryno, I received a mail from Verline last evening asking me to complete some details which I duly did, as per the previous correspondence you and I had. I have given her the okay to do the transfer to my best advantage. Again, thank you, Ryno, your company has done a great job for me and I do appreciate it. Much success in 2021!
