  • RE: Self assessment AND split year treatment question

    Thank you for your kind reply! According to my situation(1. wish to claim split year treatment ; 2. IN 21/22 tax year, after I became the UK tax resident, my total receipts from self-employment and miscellaneous income is below £1,000 for the UK part of the year), I will need to complete a 21/22 tax return SA100 and SA109. And I don't need to register as self-employed at this moment. Please correct me if I am wrong. Thank you!

    Thanks for your reply! 2. That's mean I do not need to file self assessment tax return in this tax year? Thank you so much!
  • RE: Self assessment AND split year treatment question

    Thank you for your prompt reply! 1. That's mean even my self-employed foreign yearly income is below £1,000 after I became the UK tax resident, I still need to file the return? 2. If so, which forms should I need to file? Is it SA100 AND SA109? How about my self-employed foreign income for the UK part of the year? Should I file SA106, SA103S or SA103F? 3. Because my self-employed foreign income is below £1,000 for the UK part of the year, I didn't Register as self-employed/set up as a sole trader before. Should I need to do that first?
  • RE: Self-Assessment Questions

    Thanks for your reply! 1. That's mean if I don't need to prove I'm self employment or claim expenses, also the annual income is below £1,000, then I DON'T need to send the return in this tax year. Am I correct? 2. Moreover, before I arrived in the UK(since June 2021), I was employed in Hong Kong and I quit my job on 30 April,2021 and the salary in April is over £1,000. Do I need to do self assessment and apply split year treatment? 3. I want to know more about when should I need to prove I'm self employment? I saw this " You can still send a return if you need to : prove you’re self-employed, for example to claim Tax-Free Childcare or Maternity Allowance" after I finished "Check if you need to send a Self Assessment tax return". How about Marriage Allowance? Do I need to prove I'm self employment to claim Marriage Allowance? Thank you so much and sorry if I bothered you by my questions.
  • Self assessment AND split year treatment question

    Hi, I quit my job in Hong Kong on 30 April, 2021. After that, I moved to the UK since June 2021 and had not been UK before. In 21-22 tax year, I was unemployed, but I was working as a freelancer and earn from overseas clients since August 2021. In 21-22 tax year, my freelance jobs yearly income should be below £1,000, suppose I don't need to do self assessment. However, I was employed and earned over £1,000 when I was in Hong Kong(April 2021) . (The total yearly income in 21-22 tax year still less than £12,570) Do I need to do self assessment and fill the form SA109 split year treatment in this tax year?
