Thanks for that link Meow.

Been worrying about this for a while. Was told that for new expats you could not be in the UK for more than 16 days in your first full financial year but reading through you article I should be fine for up to 90 days.

Who told you that??? You need to be out of the UK for a full tax year, so out both at the start and the end, but you can spend up to 90 days in the UK, depending on your connecting factors.

I moved out in the middle of last year so started my first full financial year in April 2013.

Someone I know who came back from the UK. I think he has just seen the first part of the new regulations and made his own rules up.

People often do. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing...

You are liable for full UK tax and NI contributions on all your overseas earnings until you break UK residency, which will be April 6th 2015 at the earliest. See HMRC6 Section 8.5 on the easiest way to do this (working full time abroad for at least a full tax year and limiting UK visits). HMRC may grant a Split-Year-Concession and backdate your UK Non-Residency to the day after you physically left the UK, but again some conditions attach, see HMRC6.

Effectively yes. Up to 90 days depending on connection factors. You should be out from the first day of a tax year (6th April) until the last one (5th April).
