You shouldn't need to fill out a tax return in South Africa as it was the responsibility of the buyer to withhold 5% of the proceeds and pay that over to SARS. Non-resident sellers are subject to a withholding tax at a rate between 5 % and 10% depending on whether they are an individual, trust or company. Also if the sale was made for less the R2m then there is no capital gains tax or withholding tax either.
