Do I need to pay tax on foreign income?

If you are resident, as a starting point, you will be liable to UK taxation on worldwide incomes and gains and if you are non-resident, you will be liable to UK taxation on UK sources of income and UK property gains only.

If you are a non dom, you will have access to a special tax regime which gives you the option to exempt foreign incomes and gains from UK taxation.

It is essential that advice is sort regarding the structure of your wealth and bank accounts, ideally prior to relocating to the UK, in order to maximise the advantages afforded under the special tax regime.

Am I non-domiciled?

Broadly, you will be considered non-domiciled if you were born outside of the UK to non domiciled parents and you do not consider the UK to be your long term home.

Therefore, it is possible for a foreign national to live/work in the UK for a period oftime and continue to retain a non domicile status, providing that an argument canbe sustained that their long term home is outside the UK.

Will I be subject to dual taxation?

The UK has over 120 double taxation agreements which provide rules to mitigate double taxation when two tax authorities seek to tax the same income or gain.

Broadly, the double taxation agreement will give the sole taxing rights to one tax authority or will require one tax authority to give a credit for tax suffered in the other tax authority.

What is the tax return filing deadline?

The UK tax year runs from 6 April to 5 April.

The tax return filing deadline is 31 October following the end of the tax year if you are filing paper or 31 January following the end of the tax year if you are filing electronically.

The payment deadline is 31 January following the end of the tax year.

Do I need to complete a tax return if I live in the UK?

As a rule of thumb, if you are resident and in receipt of overseas incomes and gains, then you will need to file a UK tax return.

This is on the basis that you will either need to:

1) pay tax on the overseas incomes and gains; or
2) claim the remittance basis so that you do not have to pay tax on the overseas incomes and gains; or
3) make a claim under a tax treaty to either exempt or lower the rate of tax suffered on the overseas incomes and gains.
