Hello! I'm looking for some advice regarding tax
JA: For which tax year do you need advice?
Customer: The last 3 years
JA: Is there anything else the Accountant should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I am a UK citizen who left the UK 11 years ago
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I left the UK 11 years ago and lived on savings for the first few years before traveling on and off to Australia where I worked and saved money on a working holiday visa. For the times I was in Australia, I was registered as a resident for tax purposes but since then I have not been registered as a tax resident anywhere else. Approximately 3 years ago I started to do some work online whilst travelling around SE Asia on Upwork.com - My question is whether I should be paying tax on this to someone? Technically, I have not actually been a resident anywhere as I have always been on tourist visas and moving around a lot but it occurred to me recently that I should get some professional advice on whether I need to pay someone tax on the money I earnt online? Your advice would be greatly appreciated! I am currently based in Indonesia. Many thanks, Jon

Thank you :) My understanding is that I'm not a UK resident because I have only spent around 9 months in the UK in total over the last 10 years and therefore I'm not liable to pay any tax to the UK on my foreign income but it would be great to confirm that. Thanks, Jon

Your tourist visa should stipulate  if you are allowed to work or not ? Do you have any idea of the conditions?

I'm not earning money from the Country I am visiting - I am a consultant for different companies around the World.

34;Your tourist visa should stipulate if you are allowed to work or not ? Do you have any idea of the conditions?" - Does this affect whether tax should be paid to the UK?

From a UK perspective, I am not a resident and do not earn any money in the UK

Hello, thank you for your feed back , you are not resident  in the uk therefore  you are not liable to Uk tax , if you are working remotely  in the UK that is still OK.  You do not owe anything.

Hope that clarifies your question.

Thank you and all the best.
