BECOMING AN EXPAT OR HAVE OVERSEAS INCOME? BE WORRY-FREE WITH GOSIMPLETAX
Becoming an expat or earning overseas has its tax implications. How can you ensure you’re maximising your income, whilst at the same time not appearing as avoiding or evading tax to HMRC?
GoSimpleTax makes the tax return process straightforward. It can be used to:
- Prompt you on deadlines

Our software can be used no matter what country you’re in, from any device and on the go. It’s HMRC-approved so you can be sure you’re using a trusted system, and has SA106 forms for foreign income and SA109 forms for Residence & remittance available.
With GoSimpleTax by your side, you can compliantly enjoy overseas income.
Should I fill in a SA109 form too?
If you’re an expat or contracting, then you may need to file the SA109 supplementary pages as part of your Self Assessment as well.
The SA109 requires completion if you’re taxable on a remittance basis – that is, not domiciled in the UK but receiving foreign income and gains. You’ll also be taxable if you’re a non-UK resident, not ordinarily a resident here, or if you’re classed as a dual resident.
If you’re unsure whether you fit the criteria, you’re classed as a resident if:
- you spend 183 days or more of the tax year in the UK
- your only home (that you have owned, rented or lived in for at least 91 days) is in the UK and you spend at least 30 days of the tax year there.
The supplementary pages allow you to record your residence and domicile status on your SA100 Self Assessment form.
GoSimpleTax has the SA109 available in our tax software, so you can complete all parts of your tax return seamlessly.
Input your information, and our software works out all the figures. You’ll be able to complete your Self Assessment tax return entirely online – no paper required. For anything in this format, simply take a picture and upload it to the platform in an instant to digitalise it.
Our intelligent software means you won’t have to determine the best way to reduce your tax bill yourself. It analyses your data to suggest the tax savings most suitable to you. Working in real time, you’ll have a full picture of the amount owed at any point in the year.
