I anticipate moving abroad in 2020 for a whole calendar year without returning. I have some shares and commodities that I may sell in that year. I bought them a few years ago in the UK and I am a UK resident. Would I need to extend my stay in that country to the whole financial year (until April) if I was to automatically be classified as a non-resident?
GOV website says:
You’re automatically non-resident if either:
you spent fewer than 16 days in the UK (or 46 days if you haven’t been classed as UK resident for the 3 previous tax years)
I just don't know if this is the tax year or not. And I don't know if I will need to pay CGT to HMRC if I bought the shares here.
