Hi, my entire family is scheduled to relocate to the UK on October 11th. While my wife does not have any income, I have income from overseas sources. I intend to utilize the remittance basis for tax reporting. Upon our arrival in the UK on October 11th, we will apply for the NI number. After obtaining the NI number, should we immediately proceed with the self-assessment process, or do we have the option to complete it on or before October 5th, 2024?

Please have a look at the guidance on the remittance basis at RDR1.

Residence, domicile and the remittance basis: RDR1

If you choose to use the remittance basis, then you will need to register for self assessment, and submit SA100 & SA109, plus any other relevant supplementary pages. A tax return for 2023 to 2024 is only available after 5 April 2024.  

You can register for a Self Assessment Tax Return at:

Thank you.
