What does it mean that you have to tell hmrc if you move abroad ??

It means that it facilitates tax matters, including refunds, for example if you're on PAYE based upon a full tax year you might have paid too much tax. If you're not concerned about that or normally fill in a tax return then it's not necessary as you can make a declaration there. Obviously telling them your new address is useful if they ever need to get in contact with you.



I've never filled in any special form and have had tax returns delivered to UK addresses without ever having had any problem. I do file the non-resident tax return every year which you can't do using the HMRC's own online forms even though the result is always the same as filing a resident tax return.
