Resident / Non-resident

It is important to understand what is meant by ‘resident in the UK’, as this will determine what UK tax you will have to pay. The rules around establishing yourself as “non-resident” can be mind-boggling and the HMRC guidance on the subject can be difficult to get to grips with. For example, it is possible to be resident in the UK under our tax rules and at the same time be resident in another country under that country’s tax rules. This is sometimes referred to as ‘dual residence’. This can be a very complicated procedure and it is important to seek professional advice in order to get a simple overview and specific advice tailored to your individual situation.
