"if they moved permanently to an EU country" do you understand the meaning of the word "permanent"?
Why would they consider returning and living in the UK if they are permanently in another country?
Permeant in UK tax terms means more than a tax year, same as having a job in Ch with no end date. It's permanent & you get fired or give notice.

Permanent meaning they have taken up permanent residency in another country and have the relevant
permanent residence card, certificate, etc ( after satisfying the relevant authorities upon application for
permanent residency ) to prove it.

At the end of the day, it's as 'permanent as the conditions are favourable in their newly adopted country'.
I've lost count of the number of Expats who say they have 'permanently emigrated' to another country
and wouldn't dream of going back to the old country again. Only for 'force of circumstances' or
other unforeseen events to put a spanner in the works, eg Brexit or the Pandemic, whether it be 3 ,10,
20 or 30 years or more after they moved.

Indeed. lived permanently in UK for 40 years and never ever considered going back to CH where I grew up. Then I retired, my parents were in their 90s and needed help, and we fell in love with this old house ...Was never ever on the cards.
