Hi Phil. Since you arrived in the UK what non-UK income and capital gains have you received?
If I assume that you were working full time when you were in the UK it is likely that you would be considered as a UK tax resident from 2013 to 2018. As such, during that time, you would be subject to tax on your worldwide income and gains. However since you had no non-UK income or gains and you were paying tax in the UK it sounds as though you did everything correctly.
Now that you have left the UK there is obligation for you to inform HMRC.
However it may be worth calling or writing HMRC to explain that you have left the UK if:
They have asked you to complete a tax return and you don’t have any income or gains to report
If you were an employee and you left part-way through a tax year you may be due a refund as you would not have received all of your personal allowance via pay as you earn (PAYE)
If you have any follow up questions, I am happy to help. Otherwise please consider a 5 star rating for my answer.
