  • RE: bonus payment

    I moved to the UK in August 2023 and has been working. Hence I believe I am tax resident in the UK since Aug 2023. Before that I was in Hong Kong and employed by a Hong Kong employer. I received bonus from my pervious employment in Hong Kong in January 2024. This bonus was credited by Hong Kong employer to my Hong Kong bank account and is taxable in Hong Kong. My questions are - do I need to report this bonus to HRMC? Do I need to pay UK tax on this bonus? What should I do to avoid double taxation? I am expecting to apply arising basis.
