I have submitted my tax return on the 15 July and got the email with my statement but I haven't received money yet 5 days later...

There are a few scenarios whereby a refund can be delayed. For example, if you received a request for supporting documents or if you have old tax returns outstanding.

However, 5 days is not too long so you might just need to be patient for a while longer!

Thank you, so what's the minimum waiting days?

It can take a day or two if you are not having to submit supporting documents, your bank details are up to date with SARS and you are up to date with all prior tax return filings. You can always call SARS on 0800 00 7277 to follow up if there are any issues.
