  • Do I have to pay tax for the time I’m not even immigrated to the UK

    Hi there, I’ve just received a letter from HMRC mentioning that I would have to complete the self-assessment form for the tax year from 6th April 2020 to 5th April 2021. My question is: I have only arrived and immigrated to the United Kingdom on 11th September 2021. Before my arrival, I’ve no UK-sourced income and not even working for a United Kingdom registered company at all. With no affiliation to the UK, would I need to report any of the income generated back then? As I believe the UK tax system shall not be charging me any tax from the income before my physical arrival date. Could I know more about that? Thank you.
