A Non-resident is someone who temporarily works in the UK. They have different tax rules and obligations to resident tax payers.

More detail:

A Non-resident is an individual who works in the United Kingdom but it is only temporarily.

There are many different qualifying factors for people to be declared as a resident or a Non-resident. The Statutory Residence Test in run by HMRC and that is used to declare if someone is defined as a tax resident of the UK.

A Non-resident only pays UK tax on their UK earnings and not on their foreign income. This would be different for a tax resident. Thus, it is very important for an individual to determine their residency status.

If a Non-resident was in full-time employment for their temporary stay, their tax obligations will have been sorted by their employer through PAYE. But, other Non-residents might need to submit a Self Assessment.
