Non-residents are often British-born individuals who persuade the authorities they have largely left the country and are therefore able legally to avoid many British taxes.
Accountants and tax experts have long assumed that as long as someone spent no more than 91 days a year in Britain, they could claim non-resident status and tax benefits.

However it now seems if you have ties in the U.K. such as sending your children to school there, still own a house etc the tax man can come after you regardless of the 91 day rule.

crazy isn't it?

we have no financial ties with the UK at the moment - we cut them all when we left

that can always change though - we won't be buying property there but dh might be doing some work for a UK company so that's all going to get very confusing

the question is whether to be an employee for them or a freelancer from here - he won't be physically there at all!
