Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
When you leave the UK, be sure to send a Form P85 to your tax office. Is your income from the company dividends or salary?
On receipt of the Form P85 HMRC will classify you as non-resident for the tax year following your date of departure and, furthermore, split the leaving year into two portions, one resident the other non-resident. You will thus not be subject to UK taxation on your Greek activities. Your UK income will continue to be taxed there and will be taxed in Greece also. You will have to rely on the Double Taxation Convention between the two countries, which precludes the same income stream being taxed in both, for protection. The tax paid in the UK will be allowed as a tax credit against any Greek liability. The first 2K of dividend income in the UK is tax-free.
Thank you for your support.
