Brian, thank you for your reply.
Based on information given by you you certainly do not pass the first and second automatic overseas test i.e.
First automatic overseas test
1.3 You were resident in the UK for one or more of the three tax years preceding the tax year, and you spend fewer than 16 days in the UK in the tax year. If an individual dies in the tax year then this test does not apply.
(you spent around 28 days in the UK in the tax year 2013-14)
Second automatic overseas test
1.4 You were resident in the UK for none of the three tax years preceding the tax year, and you spend fewer than 46 days in the UK in the tax year.
You mentioned your spouse has a home in the UK. I presume you have family tie and or accommodation tie in the UK. You have a UK accommodation tie if residential property:
- is available to be used by you as a place of residence; and
- is available for your use for a continuous period of at least 91 days in the tax year, and
- you spend at least one night in the tax year at that property
Based on above, I feel you are UK resident for tax purposes for year 2013-14.
I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
