Any person who is considering leaving South Africa permanently should carefully take into account the tax implications of ceasing to be tax resident as well as consequences after departure.

Emigration for tax purposes could have immediate tax consequences with a possible liability for tax the day before the person breaks tax residency.  These tax implications, which includes deeming provisions, are often misunderstood and missed.

More Information


Emigration for exchange control purposes requires a formal application to be made to the Financial Surveillance Department of the South African Reserve Bank, which will disclose all local assets of the emigrant at the date of departure.

All emigration applications require a completed Form MP 336(b) and a specific emigration tax clearance certificate from the South African Revenue Service before any funds or income can exit South Africa.
