I am leaving UK permanently and moving to USA to work. I have choice of either leaving towards end of September (after 29th) or towards end of October. If I leave on 29th of Sept I would have spent 180 days in the UK for this tax year.
So from personal income tax perspective moving out in Sept be a better option or it doesn't matter?
I'm higher rate tax payer but if I leave UK about half way thru tax year then my total annual income in the UK would be below 40% tax rate threshold therefore I believe I should get tax refund because my employer has deducted tax / PAYE - at source like they have been doing for last five years. I want to know best exit strategy to maximise tax refund this year.
