I live in Colombia, and I am considered a tax resident here.
I am a freelancer, and I currently have a contract with a UK company.
The money I earn is paid in full to my UK bank account, which I then transfer to my account in Colombia,
I also have an alphabet share in a UK company, and I receive an annual dividend.
Do I have to submit a UK tax return to reflect the income and/or the dividend?
Do I have to pay tax on these in the UK?
Would any of the above change if the money was paid directly into my Colombian account rather into my UK account?
I spoke to HMRC on the phone and I was told that I do not need to submit a tax return or pay tax in the UK; however, everything I read online suggests otherwise.
Please advise. Thanks in advance!
