  • Five questions about Ukraine – Quick Quiz
    It's the largest country by land area that lies entirely within Europe. And the first line of its national anthem says, reassuringly, that it's not dead yet. But what else do you know about Ukraine?

Taxation when I return to the UK

Postby Rossie » Sun 22 Apr 2012 23:12 GMT

Dear forumites.

I will shortly be commencing a tax free job in Saudi (my family will join me but my wife wont work).

Before I leave the UK I will ensure I complete all of the necessary documentation with HMRC to become non-resident in the UK. It doesn't look too complicated but everybody I talk to is telling me that I need to obtain tax advice now to ensure when I return I do not suffer tax on monies i bring back or indeed monies that I may transfer back regularly.

Frankly I just don't have the £1,000+ that advisers are looking to charge but I'm worried as there is little point moving us all if I end up paying tax on my income/savings?

Can anybody please help with advice?
