Do I have to declare the salary I earned in the UK after I left the Netherlands?


I moved back to the UK last April permanently. When I file my Dutch tax return am I obliged to tell the NL tax office about my income from my new job back in the UK for the rest of 2013, even though I am now permanently living in the UK and have been taxed already on this from the UK?


You will only have to declare the income which you earned while you were living and/or working in the Netherlands. The income you earned in the UK after you left the Netherlands will not have to be reported. 

So only if you kept working in the Netherlands after you moved to the UK then you will still have to report your salary in the Dutch tax return, as a non resident. Since you stopped working in the Netherlands your tax liability ended on the day of emigration (unless you for example still own a property in the Netherlands or a business).
