The general rule is that a UK non-resident individual remains chargeable in the UK on his UK source income, subject to the limit discussed below and any provisions to the contrary in the relevant double tax treaty between the UK and the country in which the individual is resident.
As far as foreign income is concerned, usually a UK non-resident is not chargeable on this income in the UK.

This guidance note considers the income tax position where the individual left the UK on or after 6 April 2013. For details of the UK capital gains tax liability of a temporary non-resident, see the UK capital gains tax liability of temporary non-residents guidance note.

tax deducted at source (including tax treated as paid on dividends from UK companies)
tax on property income, and
