I had a low income job for 11 months of the year. My yearly income would have been under the threshold, so I never paid any tax. I am not sure if my employer registered me, but I never received any tax documents or tax number. In February 2015 I started a new job with a higher salary. My yearly salary now puts me above the threshold and my new employer registered me and I've been paying tax since Feb. But since I only did this job for 1 month of the last tax year, my yearly income for 2014/2015 tax year remains under the threshold of R70 700.

Will I be able to claim back the tax I paid in February by submitting a tax return?

Yes you will be able to, tax is worked out on total income so when you submit you will be entitled to that tax back.
