I am leaving the UK to work overseas in Singapore from October 2022. I normally submit a self assessment tax return at the end of each tax year in the UK. When I leave the UK should I: 1) Immediately submit a P85 form to inform HMRC about my departure from the UK, or 2) Wait until I submit the self assessment tax return for the 2022/23 tax year (when I am able to do so after 6th April 2023) to inform HMRC about my departure, or 3) Submit both the P85 form and my self assessment tax return for the 2022/23 tax year.

Hi
You should submit form P85 as soon as you leave the UK.
This will allow your records to be updated at the earlies opportunity.
You will still need to submit your 22/23 tax return, however, you cannot do this before 6 April 2023.
Thankyou.
Regards.

Thank you for your response - I will submit both the P85 form upon departure from the UK as well as the tax return for the 2022/23 tax year when I am able to on or after 6th April 2023.
