Bob123 Posted May 3 Report Share Posted May 3 Became a PR in 2016 and a citizen in 2021. In Feb 2021 I officially financially emigrated and the exit tax on my 2016 world wide assets worked out that I owe SARS nothing. However now I want to cash out my SA company pension which is ~R8 million and it seems I cannot use the SARB financial emigration document to transfer the money internationally. I always assumed that having financially emigrated SARS views me as a non resident 1. How do I apply for a non residency letter from SARS? Do I merely change my status on the e-filing site, submit the supporting documents and SARS mails me the non residency letter? 2. Once I have the SARS letter, can I then cash out and transfer the pension using this letter I don't know why SARS makes it so complicated. I went through the financial emigration process, not sure why I have to repeat the process again. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
