Tax Residency

If you’re someone who travels internationally and spends significant periods outside the UK, it’s important to explore your residency status for tax purposes. We can help you navigate a set of potentially complex set of rules.

Your UK residence status will determine whether you have tax to pay in the UK. If you are physically present in the country for 183 days or more during a tax year, you will be classed as a resident in the UK for that tax year. If you are in the UK for fewer than 183 days in a tax year, you could still be deemed to be a resident in the UK, depending on a number of factors. HMRC introduced a Statutory Residence Test in 2013 to help determine residency status.

Page Kirk provides a tax residency service to correctly determine your residency status and to ensure tax compliance to avoid any penalties. Our specialist tax residency team has been providing guidance on tax residence for many years and we can find the most efficient ways to remain tax compliant.


How do the residence tests work?

There are two tests, called the ‘automatic overseas’ or ‘automatic UK’ tests, which determine whether you are automatically deemed UK or non-UK resident. If you do not meet either of the automatic tests, you would need to use the ‘sufficient ties’ test to determine your tax residence status.

We can complete all of this work on your behalf, saving you the time and hassle of the process of determining whether you must pay UK tax, understanding the complex rules and completing the paperwork.

The automatic UK tests are quite detailed, however. In summary, they include:

  • Spending 183 days or more in the UK
  • Having a home in the UK for longer than 90 days (and being in the home for at least 30 separate days)
  • Working full-time in the UK for 365 days or more over two tax years

Who can benefit from our tax residency service?

Our expert tax residency service is ideal for people who spend a lot of time travelling in and out of the UK. Travelling into the UK for work, to go on holiday, to visit family or to stay in your UK home will all contribute towards residency status. The purpose of each visit does not matter.

Your tax residency status may change if your circumstances change, so using our service will help to ensure you remain tax compliant in the event that your status changes. Changes to circumstances such as your job, the buying or selling of a UK property or a change to your relationship status could all impact your residency status.

If you experience any changes to your circumstances that could affect your residency status, you should contact us to help you to determine whether you have UK tax obligations.
