Switching tax residence
Switching country of tax residence is an obligation that if neglected can cost the taxpayer a lot of money. Taxnet has created a unique, simple and effective system for individuals who need a solution they can afford.
Almost every newcomer who spends more than 6 months working in UK, has the obligation to switch tax residence. This is something that lots of people don't know and also time consuming because there is work to be done in the UK and in the country of previous tax residence. UK authorities must be notified when the person arrived and whether she is domiciled or non domiciled (if this is relevant for tax purposes). So upon the circumstances of each person, different steps and procedures are required. Something common for every person who switches tax residence is that foreign tax authorities must become aware that the person has left the country and is not any more tax resident there.
Not every country has the same regulations so there might be occasions that the country of previous tax residence will not allow the person to leave the country (for tax purposes obviously) so in some (rare) cases a person might happen to be considered dual resident (in both countries). One thing that applies to all is that every case is unique and our 30 years experience can guarantee you the best solution.
