Well the jet lag has subsided now and those things that I have been putting off need to be addressed. That means filling out my tax return for the year up to April 06 🙁
Unlike in the USA where you pay tax wherever you are the rules for the UK and the rest of Europe differs. I was offshore for a great chunk of the tax year so in theory I should not have to pay UK tax.
To be honest as the figures are quite low I was considering just paying the UK tax this time and then looking into ways of changing my status but this is a very grey area.
If anyone has been in a similar position I’d love to hear your feedback on this before I seek advice from the IR.
