thanks, ***** ***** One more question: what if next tax year I spend less than 183 days in the UK? I know exactly how the test works. What I don't know is how to take it, where to submit it, or what evidence I will need to present. Could you please advise?

Thank you for your reply.

When you complete your tax return for next year then you should also complete supplementary pages SA109 to establish your residency status.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

Hi, thanks this is helpful. The issue is that I do not complete tax returns. I am under the Pay as You Earn scheme. Is there a way complete tax returns anyway, or a way to complete just SA109?

Thank you for your reply.

If you are paying taxes under PAYE, HMRC should be able to provide you with a certificate. If you are in receipt of foreign income, then your should register for self assessment and obtain a UTR number to enable you to file a tax return online.

You can register for self assessment here
