Returning to UK after 6 months: tax exposure
I'm sorry if this has already been covered, but I couldn't find a previous thread which covered this situation.
I have been living and working here 80% in Switzerland below the 120k threshold for 6 months, returning to the UK now. My question is, despite there being a double taxation agreement, whether I would need to pay additional tax to HMRC (from what I gather I am still resident in UK for tax purposes given the short duration, and Foreign Tax Credit may only cover the low amount of tax I paid in Switzerland and meaning I have to pay the remainder of the higher UK tax rate). I am moving back with about £10,000 that I have saved, so want to see how much of this I should safeguard for the taxman.
I will probably also seek professional advice, but perhaps there are others that have gone through a similar situation and can share their experience.
