The impact of residency status on the liability to UK tax is discussed in the Residence ― overview guidance note.
The rules on determining residency status changed on 6 April 2013 with the introduction of the statutory residence test (also known as the SRT).

For guidance on determining residence status under the statutory residence test, see the Determining residence status (2013/14 onwards) guidance note.
It is recommended that you read both of these guidance notes before continuing. The position before 6 April 2013 is covered in the Residence ― issues on leaving the UK up to 5 April 2013 guidance note.
