Hi Tim, I have been living permanently in the UK since July 2002 so have been a non-resident since then. I did work in SA for - 2 years prior to that and my employer paid tax. I have never filed a tax return in SA. Should I be doing anything?

Ideally you should be filing nil tax returns, but since you have been gone for so long it is not necessary to do so.
