Default DTA and tax advice

Hi everyone,

I am flying to SG for a 24-month, full-time contract on Sunday and I thought I was all set with tax, but I've seen a couple of things today that have worried me.

Double-tax treaty (DTA)

I've read that HMRC has a double-tax treaty with Singapore ... I wasn't aware of this. Does that mean that double-taxation won't occur as a UK resident going to work out in Singapore?

P85

With the above in mind, what is the relevance of all the overseas tests and residency/tax year queries on the P85?

I understand one should be completed for a potential tax rebate and I believe I am eligible for split-year treatment (I am a UK resident, was last year, won't be next year and I think I meet the third auto overseas test), but is this even something I need to consider if there is a DTA?

I'm no tax expert, and I appreciate you may not be either, but any assistance or clarification would be very much appreciated.

Rory

You could try finding an overseas tax consultant in UK who could give you advise.
