hello, I will leave the UK in few months (thanks to Brexit...) and won't be (normally) anymore tax resident in the UK after this for the rest of the tax year (so split year).
I understand that for people not completing usually a tax return, they have to fill a form P85.
In my case, I do fill a SATR usually, so I won't have to fill the P85 / to do an online declaration on the governement gataway. Is that correct?
So I should fill a SATR "as usual" once I have the information for the tax year.
However, for me it is not clear:
- when should I do this declaration : few weeks/months after leaving for the first part of 19/20 (where I will be UK Resident) once I have all informations or as usual when the full tax year 19/20 will be finished so before 31 october 2021 with the paper form.
- Where in the Tax Return do I indicate that I left the UK and that I am not anymore tax resident ? I don't see anything in my current SATR (short form) so I guess i need to add some pages ?
However I would like my Self Assessment record to stay open as I will still have some revenue to declare (and potentially tax to pay) in UK. How do I make sure this is happening ? But maybe it is a minor issue I guess even they close my file, they would reopen it if I send myself something in october 2022 ?
- for subsequent tax years, when it is asked about employment income/nb of employement etc., my understanding is that it is only about employment taxable in UK ?
The other part of my question is about the resident status. In my case, it breaks down to the 90 days test (some pro rata for the first split year) so I shouldn't spend more than 90 days in UK to be well non-UK resident.
However how can I prove this if it is asked? It would be quite easy to prove that I am at least XX days in UK (flights tickets, spending etc.) but how to prove I was less than YY days in the country ?
