On 3rd October 2014, I received proceeds from the sale of my primary residence. By my calculations, no capital tax is payable. I am registered as a provisional taxpayer, but have not had reason to pay any provisional tax for 5 years. Do I need to submit a provisional tax return on the sale by Feb 2015, or can I wait until I need to submit an ITR12 next year?
If you are registered then you need to submit an IRP6 - why don't you de-register as a Provisional Taxpayer as you no longer qualify.

As the sale was concluded whilst I was still registered as provisional taxpayer, don't I have to submit the ITR6 first and then deregister?

You only need to pay and be registered as a provisional taxpayer if you earn greater than an additional R20 000 taxable income per annum. Since you had no capital gain then you do not fall into this category.
