all,

I'm moving to KK in July and looking for advice on whether I'd be able to carry on working for my UK company whilst living here. I'd be on a spouse visa and we will be in KK for at least the next 2 years, and be earning below UK income and social security contribution levels, but above Malaysian tax thresholds.

I am guessing it probably is a nonstarter due to the requirements for my UK company needing to withhold money and pay it to Malaysian Income Tax department but just seeking clarity on that..

I have seen that one can work for less than 60 days and not be liable. If I were (for example) to work one day a week, so 52 days in a calendar year, would that mean I would remain non-resident for tax purposes or is that a bit of a stretch?!

Thanks
:)
