After coming to work or to live in the UK, you be liable to pay the income tax of the country you are working in. The tax you pay on your income will depend on the amount of time you intend to live in the UK. There are also some special rules for students, sports persons, teachers and entertainers.

The amount of tax you pay on your income will depend on different factors; whether you are domiciled, an ordinary resident or resident.

Resident
If you are residing in the UK for more than 183 days in a financial year, you will be treated as a resident for that particular year. In case you have planned to reside in the UK for more than three years or you intend to permanently live in the UK, you will still be treated as a UK resident. You can also be treated as a UK resident if you are in the UK for more than 91 days.

Ordinary resident
After living in the UK for more than a year, you will be treated as an ordinary resident. Moreover, you will also be treated as an ordinary resident if you are sure that you will be residing in the UK for at least three years.

Domiciled
Your domicile is mostly acquired during birth. However, this is a basic law concept that covers a range of different factors.

As there are different ways through which you might overpay on your taxes, using a tax refund calculator would be a good option. This way you can determine whether or not you are eligible for a tax rebate from HMRC.
