A new statutory test for residence status was introduced this year in an attempt to clarify the sometimes confusing historic rules which had been built up through case law and practice.
Whether a person is resident in the UK can have a significant impact on their Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax liability.
HMRC have now released an online tool which provides an indication of your residence status. This is still in development and may not produce the correct result in all cases. In any event it is only intended to be an indicator and HMRC will not be bound by it.
You can find the tool by following this link; www.hmrc.gov.uk/calcs-tools/index.shtml and click on “Tax Residence Indicator”
“As a relatively new start up business we are still very sensitive to costs. Recently we received a quotation from QBS Online on a “like for like” services basis with our existing accountants. We have made the decision to move to QBS which will realize a 36% reduction in our accountancy costs. This is most welcome news at a time where every penny counts.”

Using QBS has changed the way we do business. Previously we were using many suppliers to help us with things like accounts, payroll, even IT support. Now we use QBS for all manner of business procedures, which has simplified our outgoings and allowed us more time to spend on growing our business.
