Your answer is the starting point of what I am looking for. It seems your response was more of a paraphrase of what I had asked and spent my time online looking for. When I came to this website I selected a detailed response. In any case, I will ask my questions again. Please be specific and answer the questions with more detail and depth. If you have additional information, do mention it:
I am a UK citizen born in Damascus, Syria in 1987. My mother was naturalized. I have never lived in the UK. I don't own any property in the UK. I live in Dubai at the moment. I have a dual citizenship. I am single with no children.
I heard that my children (when they are born) will not become UK citizens unless they are born there. I called the UK border agency and they said that if i have lived in the UK for 3 years, then I am entitled to register my children.
What are the conditions for me to be settled in the uk?
What are the required procedures that I must go through?
What is the time period required?
Can I keep going back and forth to the UK while doing my photography and be considered "settled" or do I have to stay there for the time period?
Therefore, I decided to rent a house in the UK, visit every few months and pay council tax and other bills.
Is this sufficient to be considered settled in the UK?
What are my tax obligations in this case? I will have no income in the UK.Is the money i use to pay my bills taxed once it arrives in my bank account?
Am I going to be asked about where my money is coming from if the monthly spending on bills and rent is 750 pounds per month?
I also thought of establishing my freelance photography business there. I would use the UK as my base and travel a lot. However, business is very on and off and I might receive my earnings outside the UK. Do I have to pay tax on any outside earnings? What do I have to pay if I don't receive any income from this photography business?
Do I have to pay tax on any outside earnings?
Do I have to declare any outside earnings?
What do I have to pay if I don't receive any income from this photography business? Are there any monthly/yearly taxes associated for businesses that aren't doing so well?
