SA109 and treaty residence

Postby LOUIE » Mon Jan 30, 2017 1:10 am


I am resident in the UK under domestic legislation for 2015/16 (in which year I moved abroad, I don't qualify for split year treatment) but also resident abroad. Under the terms of the double tax treaty, I am resident only in the foreign country. Do I mark box 1 on SA109 ("if you were not resident in the UK for 2015/16, put X in the box")?

And elsewhere where the tax return refers to UK residence, am I or am not resident if I am domestic resident/treaty non-resident?

Hi Louie, you should NOT mark box 1 of SA109 as you were Resident for the full 2015/16 tax year under UK tax legislation.
