I was late in submitting my returns and a penalty notice was issued. I then (very quickly) finalised my returns which showed that SARS would owe me a refund. Does SARS deduct the penalty from my refund or do I have to pay the penalty first?

SARS will subtract the penalty before paying out the refund - you will get the nett amount owing to you so you won't have to worry about paying before you receive your refund.
