Working Abroad

What are the rules for becoming non resident in respect of paying UK Income tax when you reside and work abroad?
As far as I am aware you have to work abroad for at least a full financial year to avoid paying UK Income Tax. However certain people are of the opinion that there is a form (maybe I84/5) that can be filled out whereby you automatically become non resident and avoid UK Income tax as soon as you leave the country, assuming you have a contract for at least six months.
