Do I consider the tax year (calendar year) or uk tax year ?

Hello are you still there ?
Expert:  bigduckontax replied 25 days ago.

A person’s liability to German individual income tax is determined by residence status. A person can be a resident or a non-resident for German tax purposes. A resident of Germany generally refers to an individual who has a domicile in Germany or spends more than 6 consecutive months in Germany (habitual place of abode)

What about British tax ?
Customer: replied 25 days ago.
Is the German tax
Customer: replied 25 days ago.
Calendar year ?
Expert:  bigduckontax replied 25 days ago.

You can be liable to UK Income Tax (IT) with only 14 days residence, but the situation is fiendishly complicated.

Customer: replied 25 days ago.
Ok and when comparing to Germany and UK
Customer: replied 25 days ago.
When will I be liable for uk tax
Customer: replied 25 days ago.
Is there also a 183 day rule ?
Customer: replied 25 days ago.
Say I travel forth and back from Germany to the uk
Expert:  bigduckontax replied 25 days ago.

It all depends on your rotation. For example if you are one month one month off then you will remain liable to UK taxation.
