Non resident taxation

The UK tax you pay may depend on whether you’re ‘resident’, ‘ordinarily resident’ or ‘domiciled’ in the UK. You can be more than one of these - or none.


Ordinarily resident


Domicile is a general law concept; it refers to the country which is your ‘permanent home’. There are a range of factors that can affect where you are domiciled at any point in your life.

Your domicile status is usually acquired from your father, although you can change it when you become an adult. So if both you and your father were born in the UK, have lived in the UK for all or most of your lives, and do not have strong connections outside the UK then you will be domiciled within the UK.

Your domicile is only usually relevant if you have income or gains from outside the UK.

This can be a complicated area and we are able to offer advice and assistance to ensure that you are taxed correctly.
