If your salary was R5,800 per month previously, you earned below the tax threshold for the 2015 tax year (March 2014 - Feb 2015) - you would not have paid tax and therefore there is no need to file a Tax Return.
For the 2016 tax year you would be paying tax on your current salary which is above the tax threshold, so you should file a tax return for the 2016 tax year (1 March 2015 - 28 Feb 2016); filing season opens 1 July 2016 for the 2016 tax year.
