Another UAE tax question...
I am about to start working in the UAE on a 3 year contract, so my earnings there should be tax free (I will ensure I dont spend too long in the UK etc)
My wife is planning to keep working in the UK for the next couple of months and then take maternity leave. The plan is that she will come to the UAE to have the baby and then will stay living here with me on a sponsor residence visa.
She will be resident in the UAE from when she arrives. But her maternity leave will be paid by a UK company to her UK account. Does that mean she will still be liable to UK tax on that even when she is resident in the UAE?
Hoping someone can opine on this. I'm doing the finances and it makes a difference...
