Can we have the background to your question, please?



Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Danish citizen (adr. still i DK)


Holding company in DK after sale of company


Living on boat i St. katharins dock since 1.10.2012, cruising GB this summer maybe further on this winter but keeping GB as base ( will a p.o.box be sufficient ??)


Could you maybe recommend a lawyer to oversee my app.

This isnt my area. I will opt out for another expert. This might be better in UK tax, rather than law.

Hi,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer.

Is there a specific reason why you need to be a resident of England?

Kind regards

Hello,
You do not need to apply to be a resident but not domiciled in the UK. It is a question of fact.

Usually, if you spend more than 183 days in the UK, you are deemed to be resident in the UK.

Domicile is a complicated issue but you would be deemed to be Danish domiciled if you were born in Denmark to a Danish father.

I suggest you see this if you have not already:
