I am a pilot and last tax year, which I am just filling in

Resolved Question:

I am a pilot and last tax year, which I am just filling in now. I was working exclusively in Spain. I owned a house which my es wife and children lived in. I was in the UK less than 90 days and I had a business which did not make a profit (loss of £27). I have been asked to fill in a a tax return. I paid Spanish tax. Am I liable for UK tax? Is it possible that after I declare my tax return I would have to pay UK tax as well?

HelloI am going to assume that you competed and sent a P85 to inform HMRC that you were going abroad to work.You may be able to claim non resident and no tax would be due. If you work full-time abroad, you can usually visit the UK for up to 90 days - as long as you work no more than 30 of these days.It is doubtful you would owe tax.

Thanks. No I didn't send a P85. I had a UK business and I was a partner. But this made no money. My ex-wife and two children were living in the UK by I had less than 90 days in the country. I am about to complete my assessment to HMRC. Can I file a P85 if I am charged tax? 2015-2016 I became a UK resident and pay tax at source.

The P85 just informs HMRC that you are leaving the UK and will be abroad working. If you are back in the UK and resident for 2015-2016 then the P85 is not needed.
