Hi admin There is a residency test where I can check the residence status. There is a question about how many days I stayed in a certain tax year but there is no question wether I stayed continuously 180 days or with intervals. My question is , does it influence on residency status wether to stay 179 days continuously or with certain intervals. Thank you

There is a link at:

Which tax year do you want to check your UK residence status for?

Thank you.

Hello HMRC, I first arrived in the UK in 2015 and I understand, since then, I have been a UK resident but non domicile which means I am not liable to pay tax on overseas income not brought into the UK. I have earned interest income in India since the year 2017 and this remains in India and has never been remitted into the UK. I understand that since I am a non domicile for the first 7 years since I arrived into the UK, I am not liable to any tax on the interest income arising outside the UK. Also if I am required to pay tax on this interest earned in each financial year and that interest amount earned is less than £2000, then am not required to disclose or pay tax on it. Is that correct? I would be very grateful if you could please advise rather than directing me to any pages online which I find extremely difficult to make sense of which is why I am raising my query through this forum. Many Thanks!

Hi HMRC Admin, I'm an Indian national, a UK resident at the moment but non-domiciled. I relocated to the UK from India in Aug 2022 for the first time in my life to stay here for an year on employment Visa. I had foreign income in India which was already taxed and it consists of Salary (Mar 2022 - Aug 2022) and bank interest on Savings, but I never remitted that to the UK and do not have the intention to remit to the UK anytime in future as I'm permanently relocating back to India in 2 months (Oct 2023) which is my domicile country. I received a notice to do self assessment online for FY 2022-2023. Do I still have to declare this foreign income and pay taxes again. Pls. guide me what is the way to avoid taxes on this foreign income. Can I call this all as unremittable income and give the details in the SA ?

Hi Srikanth G,
If you are claiming the remittance basis, you only report the foreign income that you remit to the UK.
Further guidance is here::
Paying tax on the remittance basis (Self Assessment helpsheet HS264).
You still need to complete the tax return as this is how the remittance basis is confirmed with the SA109.
Thank you.
