Sars refund for taxes paid when emigrating?

I have formally emigrated from South Africa and have now been told that I can claim a refund for SARS taxes paid on my retirement policies that I cashed in and transferred out of the country. I have googled this but cannot find any info. Do you have any info on this that you can share with me pls?

Thank you

Emigrated formally and transferred your RA savings abroad, I would assume that you have addressed all your taxes with (South African Revenue Service) SARS and have obtained a tax clearance certificate. The taxes you paid are according to the tax year’s withdrawal lump sum tax table.

The refund is a result of the reconciliation between what you have paid and what you actually owe. If you paid more than you owe, then you are eligible for a refund claiming.
