    In the country you're going to or the one you're leaving?

    Currently living in Ireland - Irish Passport.

    Looking to move to UK. Assume UK will become my principal place of taxation.
    I know there is a dual taxation agreement so any income I earn in Ireland will be taxed here but can be offset against the UK

    Wondering do I inform revenue here when I leave? Cant imagine it is that easy

    Thanks for replying

    RB

    It's simple to move to anywhere in the EU. What Irish income do you have?

    Move mid year, it's better tax wise. If UK is also now Jan to Dec it will make sense there too.

    The Revenue rules are very clear on the matter:

    Who is Resident?
    A person is resident in Ireland for tax purposes if he/she is present in the State for -

    1. 183 days or more in that tax year or
    2. 280 days or more in that tax year plus the previous tax year taken together, with a minimum of 30 days in each year.
