I have fallen short many times & just not declared any earnings from overseas.....To date I have never paid tax on any of it. You may be one of the unlucky one's who gets caught though
It is a little more complex than that

90 day is a rule of thumb, but actual HMRC guidance states that your visits to the UK must average no more than 90 days (and never more than 183 days in any one year) over a maximum of four years.

Default Sending Money home from the UAE

Can anyone help me, i have read most of the threads on the UK/UAE tax problems and my question is this;
Can i send money home in the first year/month or do i need to cover a full financial year before it becomes tax free or is it ok as long as i stay out of the UK and not return for more 91 days per year.

Hi there,

I am about to leave the uk for the UAE on the 20th August. Does the April-August time I have spent in the UK this year (Pre-signing the P85 form) Count towards my 183 days a year? Or is it just for the time I am earning abroad?

I will obviously be coming back here for holidays from tim eto time.

Thanks in advance!

I`m no expert but i would guess that it will count as the Tax year runs April to April, the only way to get the right answer is to either sheck the Tax Office web site or give them a call.

Surely this would only count for time spent in the UK without actually paying tax and post completing the P85 form.

Thanks anyway, I will give them a call and post back my findings

Spoke to the tax office and they confirmed that the 90 day thing starts from the day you tell them you're leaving the UK (i.e the date you tell them on the P85 form.

Just to confirm, if you've been paying tax in the UK, the 183 days a year/ average of 91 days a year over 4 years, starts from the day yo stop paying tax.
