I am South African with a British Passport. I lived in the UK for 9 years and am now living in South Africa and have done for the past two years. I do not work in South Africa, all my earnings come from my registered business in England. What am I required to do with SARS? I obviously pay tax on earnings in UK and every couple or so months I transfer money over to South Africa.

If you intend to stay in SA then you would need to submit tax returns indicating the UK income, but showing that you pay taxes there and then SARS won't double tax you.
