  • Overseas Workday Relief (OWR) - Workday Clarification

    I am a UK non-dom claiming tax on the remittance basis. It is my third year living in the UK. I am employed by a UK company, but am not required to work on-site in the UK. I conduct my work almost entirely remotely (i.e. usually working from home). Over the last year, I have spent several months conducting my UK employment duties while working remotely from overseas locations (by choice). I am hoping to understand whether those days are considered 'overseas workdays' under the OWR rules? Can I claim those days as overseas workdays under the remittance basis even though I chose to work remotely as opposed to needing to do so for a business reason?
