Hi
Thanks for your question, I am Sam and I am one of the UK tax experts here on Just Answer.
If you could clarify that you left the UK before 05/04/2013 and that you live and work in Australia and your visits back to the UK did not exceed more than 90 days and none of these visits were for work purposes, and you remain living and working in Australia.
Conform that you have no UK property that you own, and that if you do whether this generates any rental income.
Finally did you advise HMRC that you had left the UK
Thanks

Hi Barrie
Thanks for your response
And are you paid from the UK or is this an Australian employer?
If its an Australian employer then you do not need to declare the income or the tax suffered, and in fact there is no need for you to compete future tax returns, so I would also be inclined to write to HMRC (let me know if you need the address) to advise that you left the UK 29/01/2013 and plan to remain out of the UK until at least Jan 2017 (if indeed that is the plan) and I would also arrange to complete form P85 for the UK tax office, link here for this form.
https://public-online.hmrc.gov.uk/lc/content/xfaforms/profiles/forms.html?contentRoot=repository:///Applications/PersonalTax_iForms/1.0/P85&template=P85.xdp
Just complete and then print off, and complete as if it was back in Jan 2013!
But for now you just need to complete the residency page of the tax return and nothing else (if you are using HMRCs free online services, then I am afraid this does not support the residency page) so you will need to print off the SA100 2014 and the SA109 2014 (Residency) but this will I am afraid incur a £100 late penalty as paper returns needed to be back with HMRC by 31/1012014 (but it may be that you are using third party software - in which case it may well support the residency page)
Let me know if you require anything else, but it would be appreciated if you could rate the level of service I have provided.
Thanks
Sam
