AFIK if you are a UK resident then tax is payable on foreign earnings once the money enters this country.So i assume going into a UK account is entering the country.Posted 5 years ago
If you are out of the country for more than 9 months every year then you would be non resident and liable to pay tax in the country where you are living.I think there may be some countries that are the exception such as Qatar.
If you’re paying tax in the foreign country you shouldn’t need to pay it here.mactheknifeSubscriber
Mate get an accontants advice, i used to work abroad for a few years and its actually pretty complicated. A lot depends on exactly how long you are out the country for and where you are working.
A mate of mine played by the rules but miscalculated his days in the UK and was hit with an 8 grand tax bill. If you get it wrong it has the potential to be very expensive.Posted 5 years ago
Compare that to a couple of hundred quid for an accountants advice.SlogoMember
thanks for all the advice.
I was going to pay all the tax which is a lot. But after speaking to someone they told me this information*.
Obviously i have not gone to an accountant. I do not mind paying for the service but being in the middle of no where, and not being able to talk to one face to face its a little hard.Posted 5 years agomactheknifeSubscriber
