Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hi. My name is Tony. I'm looking at your question now and will post my answer or ask for more information here in a short while.
Did you maintain your non-UK residence status between 6 April 2019 and the date you left the UAE. How many days did you spend in the UK in that period?
Leave this with me while I draft my answer.
You will qualify for split year treatment for 2019/20, the period 6 April 2019 to 9 October you will be treated as non-UK resident and the period 10 October 2019 to 5 April 2019 you will be treated as UK resident. Your UAE earnings will not be taxable in the UK.
Unless you are asked to complete a UK tax return for 2019/20, there is no need to complete one unless you become self-employed or have untaxed sources of income such as rental income. If you take a job in the UK you will appear on the HMRC PAYE database and they may write to you to ask what you have been doing.
I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
