Q. I left London on 5 May 2010 to work full time for a Danish company in Copenhagen. My own UK-based company ceased at that time, and I received a capital payment on 30 November 2010. As I received that money after I left the UK permanently, do I have to pay UK tax on the pay-out?
A. Unfortunately yes. Although you may be regarded as not resident in the UK for income tax purposes from 5 May 2010
