I have a bit of a tricky one on my hands here and would appreciate a few constructive opinions. I have a company whose director operates almost entirely from abroad. He has spent over 7 years away from the UK with 2 years in Seoul/Philippines and 5 years as a tax resident in Australia with a sponsored working visa. He is now a permenant resident of Paraguay and has a tax ID for Paraguay. At no point over the past 7 years has he spent more than 60 days in the UK. His company accounts have payments out to this director as consultancy fees and so I'm inclined to include them as a trading expense and just leave it at that. I contacted HMRC quite some time ago and they agreed that the payments should go through the company as consultancy fees.
I'm inclined to just roll with it and let the director deal with his own personal tax affairs, but would welcome any input.
