Thank you this sounds like very good news for me. Can you please confirm if there are any conditions that I must meet to be treated in this 'split year' way? I tried to read the HMRC online guidance and it sounded like there are some scenarios where this might not apply but I could not understand it.
I think that is everything I need but just wish to clarify -
I do go into the UK a couple of times a year for holidays. Would that be a problem? Is there a clear boundary I must not cross or is it just a case of not being in the country for more than a few weeks at a time?
