Thanks for your reply.
My house is currently empty and has been so for the last 6 weeks. Will having an empty residential property in the UK affected my tax status given my circumstances as predicted. I hope not!
If I was to rent out the property I would of course have to notify HMRC.
Finally I did not fill a P85 form. Can this be backdated to when i left the UK? Is it something I should ask my accountant to complete?
Apologies - I rated you as excellent but I think it closed the thread. All i need to know is can i keep my bank accounts in the UK. Of course I will be transferring money there to pay existing mortgage.
Thats all and thanks for the great help.
