Hi.

The "NT" stands for No Tax. If you are non-UK resident, then the tax code is correct.

Take a look at Article 15 of the France/UK tax treaty here which deals with employment income. If you are resident in France for tax purposes, you will have to pay tax on your UK earnings. It is almost impossible to pay tax nowhere unless you live in a tax haven or on a yacht travelling the world.

You should also refer to the notes here and here on what defines French tax residency and take local advice to determine your tax position definitively.

I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
