I am trying to find out what the process is for transferring an inheritance from SA to the UK. I am the main beneficiary in my grandfather's will and I have read that the process can be quite complicated.

I moved from SA to the UK in 2000. I was never employed as a tax payer in SA - only as a casual worker. I have read that in order to make the process easier, you need to emigrate with the Reserve Bank. Is this something I need to do considering I've never paid tax there?

I don't have a SA bank account (I had a savings account there but when I went back about 10 years ago, it had been closed). I am now on a British passport but I have never given up my South African one (although it has expired).

Any assistance or advice would be greatly appreciated.

As far as I know SA his restrictions on taking money out of the country. You may be better asking on the SA forum...
