52 Ways To Avoid TOP QUALITY RESIDENCES Burnout

The government is proposing new rules which come to effect from 6 April 2013 which will put UK residence for tax purposes on a statutory footing, instead of relying on HMRC guidelines and case law. In principle this is usually a sensible move and will provide certainty for anybody unsure at present whether they qualify as being non-resident in the UK for tax purposes. However the rules are complex and also have attracted some criticism for this reason.

Under the current rules you’re resident in the UK in the event that you spend 183 days or even more in the UK and you could be resident in the event that you spend more than 90 days on average. Beneath the new rules you will have no more four-year average and if you spend more than 3 months in the UK in any tax year you will continually be considered to be resident. As before, you should be away from the united kingdom for a complete tax year to be able to qualify as non-resident and a day counts as being a day on the UK for anyone who is at midnight on that day.

However, the new law is generally designed to leave most people in exactly the same position as previously so you are unlikely to find your situation suddenly altered. It is important though that you understand the brand new test of residence and non-residence. You can find three parts of the test which have to be considered to be able. In other words, if you are definitely non-resident based on Part A, then you need not consider parts B and C.

So, we think the majority of our clients should be still covered by the provision in Part A that you will be non-resident when you have left the UK to carry out full-time work abroad and are present in the UK for less than 91 days in the tax year and no more than 20 days are spent working in the UK in the tax year. Here though will be the three parts of the test.

Part A: You’re definitely non-resident if:

You were not resident in the united kingdom for the previous 3 tax years and present in the UK for less than 46 days in the current tax year; or You’re resident in the UK in one or more of the prior 3 tax years but within the UK for less than 16 days in today’s tax year; or You have gone the UK to carry out full-time work abroad and provided you were present in the UK for fewer than 91 days in the tax year no more than 20 days are spent employed in the united kingdom in the tax year. Training covered by your employer and taken in the UK will undoubtedly be considered work and this will undoubtedly be extracted from your 20 day working allowance.

Part B: You’re definitely resident if:

You are present in the UK for 183 days or more in a tax year; or You have only 1 home and that home is in the UK or have more homes and many of these are in the UK; or You perform full-time work in the united kingdom.

Part C: If your position is not described in Parts A and B then you need to compare the number of days spent in the UK against a small amount of clearly defined connection factors. These connection factors are as follows:

Family- your spouse or civil partner or common law equivalent (provided you are not separated from them) or minor children are resident in the united kingdom. Accommodation – you have accessible accommodation in the united kingdom and employs it through the tax year (subject to exclusions for some types of accommodation). Substantive work in the united kingdom – you do substantive work in the UK i.e. more than forty days in the tax year but do not work full-time in the UK. UK presence in previous years – you spent more than 90 days in the UK in either of the previous two tax years and you also spend more days in the UK in the tax year than in any other single country.

If you were not resident in any of the prior three tax years – ‘Arrivers’:

Fewer than 46 days in UK: Always non-resident. 46 – 90 days: Resident if 4 or even more connection factors. 91 – 120 days: Resident if 3 or even more connection factors. 121 – 182 days: Resident if 2 or even more connection factors. 183 days or more: Always resident.

If you were resident in one or more of the three tax years immediately prior to the tax year under consideration – ‘Leavers’:

Fewer than 16 days in UK: Always non-resident. 16 – 45 days: Resident if 4 or more connection factors. 46 – 90 days: Resident if 3 or even more connection factors. 91 – 120 days: Resident if 2 or even more connection factors. 121 – 182 days: Resident if you can find 1 or more connection factors. 183 days or more: Always resident
