Thanks for your question
Can you advsie when you initially took this contract of employment abroad up? And whetehr you ahve been treated as not resident for each full tax year since that date
When you advise you will be completing a purcahse of property in this tax year - dd you mean in the UK?
Thanks for your response
Then yes you will be eligible for split year treatment for this tax year - so all income earned abroad will remin exempt from UK tax, only income earned after your return to the UK
When any employment starts in the Uk or self employment or claims for benefits- this will be the first time that HMRC are informed of your return to the UK and recommencement of life here - until that time you need do nothing.
You do not fall under any case, you are under the non residency rules, which states that as long as you spend at least one full tax year (within contract) abroad, and visits back to the Uk are not in excess of 90 days, none of which are or work purposes - then from the date you depart the Uk to the date you return - you will earn the status of not resident and not ordinarily resident, hence the year of departure and year of return automatically are split year treatment to fulfil this fact.
