So when would it be the right time for my son to return back to uK to minimise his tax
Thank you for your reply.He should be away for a full tax year to qualify for exemption in that year.As he did not leave the UK until 28 May 2014, he should be away until 6 Apr 2016 to cover full tax year 6 Apr 2015 to 5 Apr 2016. If he were to spend a full tax year 2015-16 abroad before returning to the UK, then for the period 28 May 2014 to 5 Apr 2015, this would be a split year and monies earned whilst abroad would be tax exempt in the UK. In addition, monies earned in tax year 2015-16 would also be tax exempt in the UK.As his absence does not cover a full tax year outside the UK, unfortunately, all earnings are taxable in the UK.I hope this is helpful.
