Hi HMRC Admin,
I moved to the UK since 25 Mar 2022 through the BNO Visa and I am still working remotely in UK for the same Hong Kong employer and same employment contract. The Hong Kong employer has no presence in the UK and my salary will be paid to my HK bank account. As I only lived in the UK for 12 days which is less than 16 days in the tax year 2021-2022, I do not need to pay tax on 2021-2022 tax year and therefore I do not pay the NI for 2021-2022 tax year as well.
However, I became tax resident in the current tax year (2022-2023) and therefore I am setting up the DCNI for paying the NI in the current tax year now and trying my best to pay the NI up-to-date. I would like to clarify do I need to pay NI on the days between 25 Mar 2022 to 5 Apr 2022 (12 days) i.e. to pay the NI since the first day I came to UK or I just need to pay NI starting from 6 Apr 2022 until now because I am not tax resident in tax year 2021-2022? Thank you very much.
Hi HRMC Admin,
Thanks. I have reviewed the guidance "Remittance basis 2023 (HS264)" and likely I am non-domicile outside UK. May I further clarify the following:
I am remotely working in the UK home for Hong Kong employer. So, is the salary earned classified as foreign income or UK-based income?
I have the same situation with CliffKCLee. I also working remotely in UK for the same HK employer and same employment contract. The HK employer has no presence in the UK and my salary will be paid to my HK bank account.
My question is: Do I need to make NIC with my monthly overseas income if I claim the remittance basis on my tax return in tax year 22/23? i.e. I will not bring the HK salary to UK
Or can I apply for an exemption of paying NIC if I claim for remittance basis on my tax return in tax year 22/23? If yes, how to do so?
Thanks for your help.
Hi HRMC Admin,
I left Hong Kong and arrived in the UK in Mar 2022. Currently, I am remote working as an employee from a Hong Kong company and also I have rental and interest income in Hong Kong. Both my family and I were born in Hong Kong. May I know if I am eligible for paying tax on remittance basis? Also, do I need to pay National Insurance if I decided to claim the remittance basis on my tax return ?
