  • RE: RSU Income type

    Hi I have RSUs awarded in 2019 when I was resident in the US. I left that employment in 2020 but the RSUs were not forfeited. I became resident in the UK in the current tax year. Some of my RSUs vested before I became UK tax resident but some will only vest in 2023. Do I have to pay UK income tax on these even though they relate to employment which ceased long before I became UK tax resident? It seems that this is how the rules work for securities, even though if they were general earnings they would be treated as being for a year when I was non-UK resident. Many thanks
