Non-Resident Self Assessment Tax Return
What are non-residential tax returns?
If you have income and assets spread across more than one country, it is essential to understand how this affects your tax liability both at home and abroad. Non-residential tax returns help governments to identify a person’s annual income and decipher how much income is liable to be taxed in that country.
Generally, in a host country where you are classed as a non-resident, the government will require you only to pay tax on income earnt in that country.
Similarly, your domestic country will usually not require you to pay tax on income earnt outside the country. However, you may still have tax liabilities on assets in your domestic country. For example property, investments, and interest on savings. Some countries, such as the US, tax citizens (including citizens living abroad) and permanent residents on their income generated worldwide.
Globally the emphasis on compliance is becoming more substantial. Governments and tax authorities are increasing their focus on obtaining tax from expats and business travellers. It is becoming more difficult to determine how much tax individuals are liable for, which is why with professional advice our clients often find they receive significant tax savings and not liable to be fined.
