I've moved back to UK from Ireland. I believe I will remain tax resident in Ireland for a further 3 years (despite perminantly living in UK). Is this correct?

Question by James

Six months ago I moved back to UK from Ireland, where I had been tax resident for over 10 years. My understanding is that I will remain tax resident in Ireland for a further 3 years (despite perminantly living in UK). Is this correct (I understand if you cannot comment on non UK tax rules). If it is corrent does this mean I cannot open a UK ISA or SIPP until I become tax resident in UK (i.e. in three years time). Thank you.

Hi. If you are earning and paying tax in the UK, my understanding is that you can open an ISA or pension. However, I am not a tax adviser and you might want to check with one before opening either of these accounts.
