Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
I was born & lived in UK for 30 years. I did not complete any P85 ( that i recall), for this uk tax year, since i now own a home in uk ( although i dont live there yet, iam not on the electoral role, but do have a car in my name. do i still have 90 days to return to uk for family visits without breaking any HMRC resident thresholds.
From my circumstances, as much as you are aware, what are the main areas the HMRC consider that would make me a Tax resident of the UK.
As far as I understand I meet the automatic overseas test, from second & third test.
I have read and understood ( does not mean I am correct !!) that the HMRC may still consider people a resident even if they spend less than 91 days in uk.
Example’s I recall are:
Own a house, on the electoral role, return 5-7 days to uk per month.
Can you advise if this is correct and what are the main considerations I should avoid between now and April 2015 to reduce any classification by the HMRC as a resident of the UK.
Many thanks for the advice so far.
