I am a non resident South African - I have been living outside of the country continuously for approximately 3 years. My only source of income in South Africa is a rental property that I own. I still pay a bond on that property. I have therefore tried to complete my return by noting the above. Is there any other procedures that I should follow as a non resident, in terms of making SARS aware that I am residing outside the country at present?

No you would only complete your return using the rental income earned - the interest of the bond you can claim as a deduction against this income along with the actual expenditure incurred in earning this income. Non-residents and residents are taxed using the same tax tables.
