Do I need to pay UK tax if I'm here for work?

Understanding the UK tax system can be difficult, but if you're working in the UK it's vital that you get to grips with it. Firstly, it'll ensure you're paying the right amount of tax. Also, you'll be able to make the best use of the allowances and benefits you're entitled to. Generally, everyone in the UK is taxed separately. However, there are a few special rules covering married couples and civil partners.
