Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Most of the work that I am doing is in the UK, but my work involves me working on projects internationally. I do not have much foresight as to the projects I do in the next year will be international or not. If so they are likely to be in Europe.
I am permanently employed by a UK company.
Could you comment about the tax rule that allows foreign nationals (I am Canadian) to only pay tax on the income that they let into the country or the number of days they work in the uk?
Does this not apply to me as I am within the first 3 years and am being paid directly into an Jersey bank account?
Great thanks for your expert advice.
So just to summarise so I understand.
All the money I earn that arises in the UK I am liable to pay tax on regardless of whether or not it is paid into a Jersey account.
Despite paying it into this offshore account (it is taxed at source, so no worries I am not evading taxes), I will still have my 10K allowance.
That is to say the 10K allowance is not voided by paying directly into the offshore account.
This is the last clarification I need.
Thanks again for your help!
