  • Non-Resident - Married outside of UK. Do I have to notify HMRC?

    I have lived and worked full-time outside of the UK in Japan since 2016. According to HMRC’s guidelines I am currently considered “non-resident”. I recently married my partner here in Japan. When I received my Affirmation from the British Embassy, I was told there is no need to register my marriage in the UK (as the UK recognises marriages under Japanese law as being legal in the UK). However, I am unsure if I still need to notify HMRC of my marriage if it took place outside of the UK while I am classed as non-resident? Many thanks in advance.
