If you are going to live overseas as a British expat it is probable you can’t simply forget about UK tax.
You should advise HM Revenue & Customs when when you depart the UK to live overseas, and if you have a recurring source of income from the UK – for example income from a let property in the UK – you will need to submit a UK tax return each year.
The UK tax return which you send to HM Revenue as an expat should include a Residence supplement, which cannot be lodged through HM Revenue’s online web site.
For many expats this means UK tax forms are to be completed, and UK tax returns are to be completed each year with strict filing deadlines to be met.
bdh Tax offers the following services to individuals who are going to live and work in an expat location:
- Tax planning advice, including advice on your tax residency status in the UK. This can be key to the issue of whether your low/no tax salary is subject to income tax in the UK.
- Preparation of UK tax returns (including advice on tax deductions to reduce your tax liability); all UK tax returns are submitted to HM Revenue electronically
- Assistance to ensure income is properly taxed and not taxed twice. This includes a consideration of any applicable Tax Treaties, and (where required) liaising with your local tax accountant
bdh Tax provides a fixed fee quote whenever possible to all who are interested in engaging our services.
If you are an expat with UK income and would like a no obligation fee proposal from a firm of tax advisors that understands the issues affecting you please contact us by completing the enquiry form on this webpage, or telephone the bdh Tax office that is closest to you.
We look forward to hearing from you.
