How do I submit a nil tax return via eFiling as no longer resident in South Africa?

We have been living in Australia since 2011 so are non-residents in South Africa for income tax purposes. We are registered tax payers in Australia. When eFiling and creating my ITR12 SA tax return, do I click yes to the button saying that I have been unemployed so that I can create a nil return? Can I do this each year? Do I need to declare interest of R300 earned in South Africa - I have already declared this in my Australian return.

You should not click yes unless you are unemployed. If you are no longer a resident for South African income tax purposes then you shouldn't be liable to pay income tax in South Africa. You will need to declare your interest earned from South Africa but if you are indeed a non-resident then this income will be exempt from tax. Am I a tax resident of South Africa?
