I can't find the answer I am looking for on this so I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
Client is a pilot. Is UK and US dual resident. The money he remitted to the UK for 2017/2018 exceeds the calculation for workdays in the UK.
So for example, if we calculate on workdays he would be taxed on £30,000. However, he actually remitted £60,000. All money is from Salary - there are no other sources of income.
So of course he will be taxed on the £60,000 remitted rather than the £30,000 earned.
Now my question is, as the £60,000 is a net figure, do I need to gross it up to calculate the tax owed? Or I am making it too complicated? I think I am questionning it as he has spent the whole amount remitted, but this is a net figure.
