I have been living in UK for 1 year and working for an UK company for the past months.

Then my visa expired and I returned to my home in Brazil. However me and that company intend to keep me working remotely for them.

Hence, I could a) receive my salary in my Brazilian account, paying taxes here; b) receive my salary in my UK account which was opened before

In case b), I keep working for that UK company from Brazil and receiving money on my previous UK account, do I need to declare and pay taxes in the United Kingdom?

On https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/430830/hmrc6.pdf it is clear that "You will not pay UK tax on any employment duties which you carry out wholly abroad" but they don't mention the place where you receive your payment.

Note: I do not even have a Unique Taxpayer Reference yet because I didn't go above the minimum allowance during the months I worked on that fiscal year while at UK.

Can anyone enlighten me on this matter?

Thanks very much!
