I was a 1 year contract worker and a tax payer but my contract ended and I'm nolonger working. I am still in the first month being unemployed and looking for a new permanent job. Do I need to visit a SARS branch to inform them to avoid pernalties and if yes what documents do I take along?

You don't need to visit SARS to tell them. When you file your tax return, you can just tick yes in the block which asks whether you were unemployed for the year. This would only be if you are unemployed for the full tax year.
