Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am qualified Solicitor with over 19 Years experience in the UK.
I need a little more information to assist you with your question.
Where is your main residence?
Would you say you spend more than 182 days in the UK per tax year?
Its not that simple unfortunately,
where is you residence abroad currently?
OK, can you answer the following:-
Were you considered as a UK resident in one or more of the previous three tax years, but you spend fewer than 16 days in the UK in the current tax year?
Did you spend fewer than 46 days in the UK in the tax year AND you were non-UK resident in the preceding three tax years?
Did you work full time outside the UK and spend fewer than 91 days in the UK and you work fewer than 31 days in the UK for three hours or less in any given day?
Based on the above you may be considered a non-UK resident, so your answer about days is contained is question 2 and 3 above.
Fewer than 46 days in the UK in the tax year AND you were non-UK resident in the preceding three tax years
AND you were non-UK resident in the preceding three tax year . . not just 46 days.
that is far too a simplistic way of looking at it
I have given you the answer to your question, but the rules are very complex and I would suggest that you seek a specialist tax advisor in any event.
Well its what the rules say
"Are you saying that if I spend six weeks in the summer after 20 years as a non-resident that I am a resident?"
46 days is over 6 weeks
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
If you moved abroad, you could largely avoid UK taxes on your income, so long as you did not come back to the UK for 183 days or more in any one year, and did not spend an annual average of 91 days or more here, over four years.
