Be very careful, I went through the motions a few weeks back thinking I was going to be taxed by both countries and it turned out when I did the calculations I would actually be operated at a loss as here in Switzerland (Zurich) I only pay 8-9% tax on my earnings the rest is social security, pension and sickness and unemployment. Altogether these account for 35% of what I earn each month so I'm left with 65% take into account the the basic tax rate in the UK is 21-22% I think it would mean they'd want 13-14% so that leaves you with 51-52% of what you earn on the first 42K GBP
In the uk you haves personal allowance & here your only taxed on net income after social deductions/pension & not gross income

Re: Paying UK Tax

Correct, so does that mean the OP will be liable for yet more tax in the UK?

Re: Paying UK Tax

I've spoken to HMRC and they've explained how it works, so I think i get it now.

Basically, as long as i stay away for a full tax year, i'm ok.

However, if i return before April 2014, then I will have to fill in a tax return and then be liable to pay UK tax if it's above what i've already paid and after the personal allowance

This is basically inline with what was posted above.
