If I am working outside the country and wanted to send a large sum of money as a deposit for property within South Africa what are the Tax implications if any. I believe that because it is a large sum of money that it would need to be declared to the South African Reserve Bank beforehand.

If you fulfill the requirements for your foreign income to be exempt from tax, then there won't be tax implications in South Africa. Work through our questions on the foreign income exemption requirements to be sure.
