Taxed On UK Mortgage Payments From Abroad?

I am planning to work in Qatar but want to carry on paying my UK mortgage and sending money to my family. Will this be subject to UK taxation?

You should be in the clear as far as UK tax is concerned.

Dean Power of The Fry Group says that the amount you send back to the UK while you are working overseas will not be taxable in the UK. This is the case if you were not previously taxable on the remittance basis of taxation while living in the UK.

That would have been applicable if you were not born in the UK, for example.

So if you are UK-domiciled, and most Britons are, this will not be a problem.
