British Citizen. A British Resident?

Jump to last reply

I am a British Citizen by decent. My mother was raised in London and moved later to Israel where I was born (In 1988),raised and currently live.

Can I open a U.K bank account as a legitimate U.K resident and fall under the regular TAX paying rules?



I Know U.K citizens who are out of the country for more than 168 days in a year are excused from paying income Tax. Do you think it is a good policy to go for a U.K bank account to utilize this privilege?

I am a security officer on a passenger cruise liner, and get payed as an employee of a U.S company, which is why I turn to this option, it is a difficulty and a painful procedure to bring my salaries and report them into my own country.

As I had never lived in U.K before I am sure there is some kind of process I need to follow to register as a resident, can anyone shed light about this process? Maybe it will bring forward more difficulties than I imagined?


Thank you for anyone who will share any thoughts on this matter!
