Tax

When spending a significant amount of time in any country or state a traveller risks tax and residency issues. It is essential that you monitor and record how many days are spent in each location. Failure to meet ones tax obligations can result in fines, delays, bans and potentially prison.

Below are some examples of residency rules for a few countries.

CountryTax Residency Rule
Hong KongIndividuals earning income that arises in or is derived from a Hong Kong office or Hong Kong employment, or from services rendered in Hong Kong during visits of more than 60 days in any tax year, are subject to salaries tax.
United KingdomYou are deemed tax resident if you spend more than 183 days in a tax year within the country
United States You are tax resident if you spend 31 days in the current year AND 183 days during the 3 year period that includes the current year. The calculation is all the days in the current year and 1/3 of the days in the year before the current year and 1/6 of the days in the year before that.

Immigration

A lot of countries require a traveller to have at least 6 months left on their passport to be allowed to travel. Keeping track of when the traveller's passport expires ensures minimal disruption and delays to their travels.

This is also the case for travel visas, although they are more challenging as the traveller may need multiple visas and visas are generally valid for a much shorter period.
