Hi, I'm remittance basis user and just relocate with company from oversea office to UK office. I'm receiving relocation benefit under specified under UK contract. The company appoint relocation agent to manage shipping and other relocation expense reimbursement issue. One of the benefit is the flight ticket to UK. I booked the ticket under my oversea bank account BEFORE becoming UK resident, and only received the reimbursement AFTER flying in UK become UK resident. Now I plan to bring cash into UK, how should I categorize this "reimburse income", and is this UK taxable? Thanks

Hi al1918 YU,

Have a look at the guidance on remittance basis at:
 9. The remittance basis of taxation What is the remittance basis?.  
You will need to decide if this is income being brough to the UK.

Thank you.
