Tax when you leave the UK to live in the U.S.

Recommended Posts

I do apologise if this question has been asked previously but I couldn't find similar posts when searching.

I have been looking at the UK government's page, "Tax if you leave the UK to live abroad": https://www.gov.uk/tax-right-retire-abroad-return-to-uk

I know I have to fill in form P85 and send it to HMRC along with Parts 2 and 3 of my P45 form.

Do any other UK-to-US immigrants know if I also have to complete form SA109? I do not fill in my own tax return and no longer own property in the UK.

Thanks for your help.

I have just filled in the same form (P85) and as far as I can gather if you don't have an income from the UK then that's the only form you need.

The exception is a pension, which I will have but that is covered in the P85 form and not taxable. As I am retiring from my company the pension plan keeps the P45 so I can't fill in and return that but there is an exception box on the form for that too.

I would say to call and check but apparently they aren't good at answering their phones.... good luck!
