Liability to UK income tax

What counts as "Duties performed in the UK " ?

Didn't find your answer?

Client is non domiciled/not resident in the UK.  In his Country of Origin he owns a manufacturing company and, in his own right, acts as a commission agent.

In the year to 05.04.2021 approx £90,000 was paid into his personal UK bank account by a UK company relating to commission income in respect of deals brokered whilst physically present in the UK.

His visits to the UK amount to approx 30 days a year - combining both medical/business appointments.  The latter consists basically of meeing and greeting existing and future customers/suppliers.

Upon his return to his native country he will then follow up any matters.  I am aware of the tax position of non dom/non residents in respect of duties performed in the UK - but I am having difficulty telling myself that what he does whilst in the UK amounts to 'duties performed' in the UK.

Anyone had any experiences similar to this?

Isn't "Duties performed in the UK " a term relating to Employment income?

Shouldn't you be looking at "Trade or Profession carried on wholly or partly in the UK"?
