When you live abroad you still have to pay income tax on any income that you earn from the UK.
European Economic Area (EEA) citizens (or those who work for UK government) can benefit from the income tax allowance. This means income up to £11,500 is tax free.
The country you live in may also tax you on your UK income.
If your country of residence has a double-taxation agreement with UK you can avoid this by claiming a tax relief in UK. Details for the agreements with each country may vary but in essence it means you'll pay taxes just once.
If you are employed by a UK company but live abroad - your employer may set you up as a non-resident employee.
This means you only have to pay the UK income tax on the fraction of the year you spent working in UK, while the remainder of your income is taxed in your home country. Before filing your taxes make sure to ask your employer if they have done so.
