Tax Residency

For individuals who frequently travel internationally and spend extended periods outside the UK, understanding your residency status for tax purposes is crucial. Let us assist you in navigating this potentially complex set of rules.

Your UK residence status plays a crucial role in determining your tax obligations. Being physically present in the country for 183 days or more during a tax year classifies you as a resident in the UK for that period. If your stay is less than 183 days, residency status depends on various factors. HMRC introduced a Statutory Residence Test in 2013 to aid in determining residency.

Leewop offers a tax residency service to accurately assess your residency status and ensure tax compliance, mitigating potential penalties. Our specialized tax residency team has extensive experience guiding individuals on tax residence, providing efficient solutions for remaining 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 specialized tax residency service is designed for individuals who frequently travel in and out of the UK. Whether you visit for work, holidays, family visits, or to stay in your UK home, each entry contributes to your residency status, regardless of the purpose of the visit.

Tax residency status may change with alterations in your circumstances. Using our service ensures ongoing tax compliance, especially if there are changes in your job, property transactions, or relationship status, all of which could impact your residency status.

If your circumstances change and you are uncertain about your residency status, contact us to determine your UK tax obligations.
