I have calculated my yearly taxable earnings for the 2015-2016 tax year, and the PAYE deducted each month was significantly higher than needed as I was unemployed for the majority of the year, bar a few months. How do I go about getting this money back? Is the company liable to pay it back to me or must I claim it from SARS (the last month I worked was November 2015, and I started in August 2015).

You need to claim it back from SARS. You can do this when you file your 2016 tax return - filing season opens on 1 July 2016. Please Register for TaxTim and let us assist you with this process.
