Do I have to pay tax on my salary if I send some of it back to the UK?
If I live and work in China (and pay tax in China) but send some of my salary back to the UK (where I may or may not return to one day) do I have to pay tax on that again? Thanks

Tax Adviser. It depends if you are also tax resident in the UK. It is not as simple as spending more days out of the UK than in it. It isn't the act of sending money that is important, but your tax-residency.
