Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

Is your UK company doing business with UK based customers?

If there is no requirement that you have to be present in the UK to undertake the duties/work, I see no problem in you providing these services from a remote location (in your case Kenya.).

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

If you have any other questions, please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.

HI. thanks for the quick reply. I had the impression that there would be a tax implication if I was not physically in the UK and that if my status changed to non-resident. Is the fact that I'm not physically in UK irrelevant?

Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 2 years ago.
Any income arising in the UK is chargeable to UK tax
If this income is going through the books of your LTD company, then it will form part of company turnover and chargeable to CT.

If you invoice the customer on freelance basis from Kenya as a provider of service from a remote location and the customer paid you direct, then you would decalre it to Kenyan tax authorities.

I hope this is helpful.
