uk s/e of non-resident

non-resident but carried out self employment for uk based company

Didn't find your answer?

I have a client that completes annual returns for uk rental property.  He carried out a one-off self employed assignment last year and the UK based payer paid his fee into his UK account.  He remained non-resident and carried out the work whilst he was abroad.  I believe this doesn't need to be declared on his UK tax return but can anyone confirm that?

You are taxable on trading IN the UK, not trading WITH the UK. If he has no UK presence (a 'permanent establishment' - there's an accepted OECD definition - https://bit.ly/2B4ZCKx) and is non-resident, his overseas profits from selling services to UK customers are not taxable in the UK.
