Good afternoon, I have a question about my self assessment tax return. In Jan 2023 HMRC accepted my pre-settlement scheme that it’s valid for 5 years (it can be renewed). As pre-settlement status I was employed by UK companies in 2023 and 2024. I also worked in UK for 2020-2021-2022 (prepared self assessment tax return as not UK resident). I was offered full-time contracts (Nov 2022-Apr 2023 in London, Jun-Dec 2023 in Leeds, Jan-Dec 2024 in London) for 40 hours/week in payroll inside IR35 and I paid taxes for those employments (P60 and P45 modules for Apr 2023-Apr 2024). I usually can work remotely (not onsite) visiting offices once every month (except annual leave) and I usually stay in UK for about 8-10 days for month. This year, because of health issue in January and part of February 2024, I was physically present in UK for about 50-60 days, other days working abroad. I did work remotely all the time of sickness (around 45 days) as agreed with my Employer because I could not fly to London. Consider that I have a residence in London since Nov 2022. Therefore: - I received only payrolls for my employments (contract as employee) - I did not have other self-Employment, Partnership, UK Property, Foreign Income, Trusts, Capital Gain In the past I prepared self assessment for other 2020-2021, 2021-2022, 2022-2023. Now I received letter from HMRC about self assessment tax return. Due to only employments and relative tax already paid and no other taxable incomes, do I need to prepare self assessment tax return for 2023-2024? Thanks in advance for your support.
