The windfall is from my personal share of income into a family limited partnership in my own family in the US; the source is the sale of coal on property belonging to the family.
My previous job was as a lecturer at a university in the UK and is with the University Superannuation Scheme.
Thanks, ***** ***** forward to receiving it.
Hi again.I cannot see you having any problems so long as you maintain your non-UK tax residence status. Take a look here for information on the statutory residence scheme:http://www.shipleys.com/resources/issue/statutory-residence-testhttps://www.gov.uk/government/publications/rdr3-statutory-residence-test-srtAs you are currently non-UK resident, you are only normally taxable in the UK on UK source income. As your USC pension is not a government service pension which would have made it taxable in the UK if it was, it will be taxable on you in the US, not the UK. Take a look here for a list of government/non government service pensions:
The windfall monies will not be taxable in the UK as they aren't from a UK source and you are non-UK resident for tax purposes.The fact that you send money to your family in the UK does not make it taxable in the UK or you tax resident in the UK. Many people work abroad, some in dangerous places, they leave their families behind in the UK and send money home to pay the household bills etc. That doesn't cause tax problems.I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
