The UK Statutory Residence Test (SRT) was introduced in April 2013 to clarify UK residency.
The UK system asks 6 key questions to establish residence. There are three Automatic Overseas tests and three Automatic UK tests. If these tests are not conclusive, the SRT then considers your connections with the UK (‘Sufficient Ties’).
The Sufficient Ties test counts the number of ‘ties’ you have with the UK and allocates an allowable number of days in the UK. Ties include:
To become an Expat, US citizens must meet the Physical Presence Test.
“Generally to meet the physical presence test, you must be physically present in a foreign country or countries for at least 330 days during a 12 month period. You can count days you spend abroad for any reason… A Full Day is a period of 24 consecutive hours, beginning at midnight.”
TrackingDays includes a Non USA Days feature that tracks full days, midnight to midnight spent outside of the USA.
TrackingDays flexibilty can help you count your US days for the complicated Substantial Presence Test formula, over a period of 3 years.
Foreigners who own property in the USA or simply enjoy spending their vacation or retirement time in the US also need to keep a close eye on the number of days they spend there.
