  • Learn what the 2025 non-dom changes are, and how they will affect you.

What is the Non-Dom Tax Status in the UK?

Non-dom tax status in the UK applies to individuals who live in the UK but do not consider it their permanent home or “domicile” for tax purposes. This distinction is crucial for understanding how different income sources are taxed.

Understanding the concept of domicile is essentia, as it is different from residency and directly influences your tax obligations.

This status allows individuals to benefit from the remittance basis of taxation, where they are only taxed on the income they bring into the UK rather than their worldwide income.

This can be advantageous for UK residents who earn significant income outside the UK.

What Defines Domicile?

Domicile refers to the country a person regards as their permanent home or lives in to reside indefinitely.

Unlike residency, which can change from year to year based on the number of days spent in a country, domicile is typically acquired at birth and reflects deeper personal connections.

However, an individual can change their domicile by intending to settle in another country permanently.

What Are the Differences Between Domicile and Residency?

Domicile and residency are used to determine a person’s tax obligations and legal rights. The table below outlines the differences between Domicile and Residency:

Non-Dom (Non-Domiciled) Non-Resident
Definition Individuals who reside in the UK but do not consider it their permanent home, having domicile elsewhere. Individuals who do not meet the criteria to be considered tax residents in the UK, typically based on days spent in the UK.
Tax Basis Can choose to be taxed on a remittance basis – paying UK tax only on income and gains brought into the UK. Taxed only on UK-sourced income and gains.
Tax Advantages Potential tax savings on foreign income not remitted to the UK, subject to annual charges after a certain period of UK residence. Exempt from UK tax on foreign income and gains, taxed only on income generated within the UK.
Legal Basis Based on the concept of domicile, reflecting deeper personal or familial connections to another country. Based on the Statutory Residence Test determining physical presence within a tax year.

What Is the Difference Between Non-Dom and Non-Resident

While both non-dom and non-resident relate to tax status, they refer to different aspects of an individual’s connections to the UK. The table below outlines the differences between a non-dom and non-resident:

Non-Dom (Non-Domiciled) Non-Resident
Definition Individuals who reside in the UK but do not consider it their permanent home, having domicile elsewhere. Individuals who do not meet the criteria to be considered tax residents in the UK, typically based on days spent in the UK.
Tax Basis Can choose to be taxed on a remittance basis – paying UK tax only on income and gains brought into the UK. Taxed only on UK-sourced income and gains.
Tax Advantages Potential tax savings on foreign income not remitted to the UK, subject to annual charges after a certain period of UK residence. Exempt from UK tax on foreign income and gains, taxed only on income generated within the UK.
Legal Basis Based on the concept of domicile, reflecting deeper personal or familial connections to another country. Based on the statutory residence test determining physical presence within a tax year.

How to Become Non-Domiciled in the UK

Becoming non-domiciled in the UK requires you to demonstrate that your permanent home, or domicile, remains outside the UK despite your residency status.

There are two main ways your domicile is determined:

Domicile of Origin: Everyone acquires a domicile of origin at birth, typically the domicile of their father if their parents are married or their mother if they are not.

This domicile remains in place until it can be replaced by a domicile of choice.

As long as you can reasonably argue that your natural and permanent home is your domicile of origin, and you plan to return there indefinitely in the future, you should maintain your domicile status even if you move to another country.

Domicile of Choice: To establish a domicile of choice, you must move to a new country and demonstrate a clear intention to make your permanent home there indefinitely.

Evidence includes buying property, setting up long-term business arrangements, family movements, and a will indicating the country as your permanent home.

Non-Dom Tax Rules

Understanding the tax rules for non-domiciled residents in the UK is crucial for effective tax planning and compliance.

The tax rules for UK non-dom status are designed to address the unique status of residents whose permanent home, or domicile, is not in the UK.

These non-dom tax rules provide opportunities for tax optimisation but involve complexities requiring careful management. Here’s an overview of the key tax rules affecting non-doms in the UK:

‘Deemed Domicile Rule’

As of April 2017, non-doms who have been UK residents for 15 of the past 20 tax years will be deemed domiciled in the UK for tax purposes.

This applies to all taxes, including income, capital gains, and inheritance.

Once you’re deemed domiciled, there are significant implications. You will no longer be able to claim the remittance basis and will be subject to UK tax on your worldwide income and gains.

For income tax and Capital Gains Tax purposes, the deemed domicile status can be broken by six complete tax years of non-UK residence.

For inheritance tax purposes, the deemed domicile status ceases once you have been a non-UK resident for four complete tax years.

Remittance Basis of Taxation for Non-Doms

If you are a UK resident but have a non-dom status, you can choose your income to be taxed on either the arising or remittance basis:

Remittance Basis: Your foreign income is only taxed if brought back to the UK or spent in the UK.
Arising Basis: Your worldwide income and gains are taxed in the year they arise or are received in the UK.

To opt for the remittance basis, non-doms need to claim it on their self-assessment tax return each year.
If no claim is made, the arising basis applies automatically.

However, If your unremitted foreign income and/or capital gains are below £2,000, the remittance basis will be applied automatically, so no claim is required.

You can opt-in and out of the remittance every year. This can be used for tax planning opportunities, as you will already know your income position for the tax year, allowing you to make a decision based on your yearly UK tax liabilities.

Who Is Eligible for the UK Non-Dom Remittance Basis

The non-dom remittance basis is available to:

  • Residents in the UK but not domiciled.
  • Non-doms automatically have access to the remittance basis in any year they have been resident in the UK for less than seven of the previous nine tax years without needing to pay a charge.
  • Those who are deemed domiciled under the “deemed domicile rule” for income tax and capital gains tax purposes after being a UK resident for at least 15 of the previous 20 tax years.

Is There a Non-Domicile Tax Charge?

After a certain period of UK residency, claiming the remittance basis incurs an annual charge called the remittance basis charge (RBC).

This charge is £30,000 if you have lived in the UK for at least seven of the last nine years and £60,000 if you have lived there for at least twelve of the previous fourteen years.

Another thing you must consider is that claiming the remittance basis will result in you losing your personal allowances for income tax and the capital gains tax annual exempt amount.

You should seek expert non-dom tax advice to determine the suitability of claiming the remittance basis. This will depend on your level of foreign income, your tax liability in the UK, and how this compares to the non-domicile tax charge.

Capital Gains Tax for UK Non-Domiciled Residents

For UK non-domiciled residents, an understanding of the specific tax rules regarding Capital Gains Tax can provide significant advantages, particularly for those choosing to be taxed on a remittance basis. This knowledge is critical for effective tax planning.

For non-doms who elect the remittance basis of taxation, Capital Gains Tax has the following specific rules:

  • Non-doms are only taxed on gains from the disposal of overseas assets if and when the gains are brought into or enjoyed in the UK.
  • Any gains realised on the disposal of assets outside the UK that are not remitted to the UK remain untaxed by the UK.

Capital Gains Tax Planning Strategies

If you have a non-dom status with the UK, you can use several tax planning strategies to manage your Capital Gains Tax liability effectively:

  • Timing of disposals: Planning the disposal of significant assets to coincide with non-residency periods can reduce your Capital Gains Tax exposure.
  • Use of tax-efficient investments: Investing in assets that qualify for Capital Gains Tax reliefs, such as shares in qualifying Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) companies, can also reduce your Capital Gains Tax.
  • Segregation of assets: Keeping foreign assets that might appreciate separate from UK assets can help manage which gains are subject to UK taxes.

Inheritance Tax for UK Non-Domiciled Residents

Inheritance Tax is a significant consideration for non-dom residents living in the UK.

The rules for non-dom inheritance tax are particularly advantageous, depending on their domicile status and the duration of their residence in the UK.

Here’s a detailed examination of how the Inheritance Tax applies to non-doms:

Non-Dom Inheritance Tax Rule

  • UK assets only: Initially, non-doms do not pay Inheritance Tax on their non-UK assets. This includes property, investments, or other valuable assets located within the UK.
  • Inheritance Tax rate: The current Inheritance Tax rate is 40% on estates valued over the nil-rate band of £325,000. This threshold can be higher if the residence nil-rate band applies or any unused threshold is transferred from a deceased spouse or civil partner.

Deemed Domicile for Inheritance Tax Purposes

  • 15-Year Rule: For Inheritance Tax individuals become deemed domiciled in the UK after being resident in the UK for at least 15 out of the previous 20 tax years.
  • Worldwide Assets: Once deemed domiciled under this rule, non-doms are subject to Inheritance Tax on their worldwide assets, not just those in the UK.

Inheritance Tax Planning Before Deemed Domicile

Non-doms approaching the 15-year threshold may consider restructuring the ownership of significant assets.

Holding assets through foreign corporate structures or trusts can sometimes shield them from UK Inheritance Tax. However, recent changes have tightened these rules.

Giving gifts more than seven years before death can reduce inheritance tax liability, as these are usually exempt from inheritance tax if the donor lives for seven years after making the gift.

Non-doms should consider this strategy for their non-UK assets before they become deemed domiciled.

Spousal Exemption for Non-Doms

Assets passed to a spouse or civil partner are exempt from Inheritance Tax if the spouse or civil partner is domiciled in the UK.

If the spouse is not domiciled in the UK, the exemption limit is £325,000 unless the spouse elects to be treated as UK-domiciled for Inheritance Tax purposes.

Non-Dom Inheritance Tax Strategies

  • Insurance Policies: Life insurance policies can be arranged to cover potential Inheritance Tax liabilities. Placing these policies in trust ensures the proceeds are outside of the estate and not subject to Inheritance Tax.
  • Using Trusts: Trusts remain crucial to Inheritance Tax planning for non-doms. Properly structured trusts can help manage and mitigate exposure to Inheritance Tax, especially for significant international assets.

Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED) for UK Non-Domiciled Residents

Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings is a UK tax imposed annually on residential properties held within a corporate structure.

Implications of Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings for Non-Doms

  • Annual charge: The amount of Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings payable depends on the property’s value, with different bands imposing higher charges as property values increase.
  • Filing requirements: Companies holding residential properties that meet the criteria must file an annual tax return on enveloped dwellings and pay the tax due within set deadlines.
  • Exemptions and reliefs: Specific reliefs and exemptions are available for properties rented out commercially to third parties or properties used for charitable purposes. Non-doms need to assess if any of these reliefs apply to their situation.

Tax Planning Considerations

  • Cost vs. benefit: Non-doms must evaluate whether the advantages of holding UK property in a corporate structure outweigh the costs imposed by ATED.
  • Alternative structures: Given the financial implications of ATED, non-doms might consider holding property directly or through alternative structures that do not trigger ATED but still provide some level of tax efficiency.

Due to the complexities associated with the Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings and other tax statutes affecting property ownership, non-doms should seek professional tax and legal advice to navigate these rules effectively.

Statutory Residence Test (SRT) For Non-Doms

The Statutory Residence Test is directly linked to the tax residency status of non-domiciled residents in the UK.

It is the determining factor that decides whether they are considered UK residents for tax purposes in a given tax year.

This direct link underscores the importance of understanding the SRT, as it has a profound impact on their tax obligations, including their eligibility to claim non-dom status and the remittance basis of taxation.

The Statutory Residence Test can lead to significant tax advantages, depending on your time in the UK and your other ties to the country.

Given the complexities involved, non-doms should seek professional advice to ensure compliance and maximise their non-dom tax status options.

What Are the Non-Dom Rule Changes in 2025

As part of the March 2024 Budget, Chancellor Jeremy Hunt announced that the government will scrap the non-dom tax status in the UK.

Starting on April 6, 2025, significant non-dom rule changes will be introduced for UK resident non-domiciled individuals, marking a departure from the current remittance basis of taxation. Here’s what you need to know about the upcoming changes:

The table below summarises the fundamental changes to the uk non domicile rules and the implications for UK resident non-domiciled individuals:

Change Description Implications for Non-Doms
Abolition of the Remittance Basis The remittance basis of taxation will be abolished for UK resident non-domiciled individuals. This means non-doms can no longer pay tax only on the income and gains they bring into the UK. Increased tax liability: Non-doms will be required to pay UK taxes on their worldwide income and gains from the start of their residency. This change eliminates the flexibility to avoid UK tax on unremitted foreign income and gains, leading to potentially higher overall tax costs.
Introduction of the Four-Year FIG Regime Starting from April 6, 2025, a new 4-year Foreign Income and Gains (FIG) regime will replace the remittance basis. Under this regime, qualifying individuals will not be taxed on foreign income and gains (FIG) that arise in the first four tax years after they become UK tax residents. Additionally, these funds can be brought into the UK without additional charges. Temporary tax relief: This regime provides temporary relief from UK tax on foreign income and gains for the first four years of UK residency, after being non-UK residents for ten tax years. However, this benefit is limited to four years, after which foreign income and gains will be taxable in the UK.
Non-Resident Trust Distributions Under the new four-year FIG regime, qualifying individuals will not be taxed on distributions from non-resident trusts during this period. Strategic planning opportunity: The exemption from tax on non-resident trust distributions provides a window for tax planning. Non-doms can benefit from receiving distributions without additional tax within the first four years, encouraging strategic distribution planning from foreign trusts.
Taxation of UK Income and Gains Despite the changes, individuals will continue to pay taxes on UK-sourced income and gains, maintaining the current taxation approach for UK income and gains for non-domiciled individuals. Continued UK tax on domestic earnings: Non-doms must still manage and plan for UK-sourced income and gains taxes. This aspect remains unchanged, emphasising the need for ongoing careful tax planning around UK assets and income sources.
Transition Provisions On April 6, 2025, individuals who have been UK tax residents for less than four years after a non-UK residence period spanning ten tax years will be eligible to use the new FIG regime for any remaining years out of those four years. Limited transition opportunity: Those in the UK for less than four years by April 6, 2025, can still benefit from the new regime but only for the remainder of the four years. This creates a planning opportunity to maximise the benefits of the new regime during this transitional window.
Overseas Workday Relief (OWR) The OWR will be retained and simplified, offering tax relief for the first three tax years of UK residence. From April 6, 2025, eligibility for OWR will be based on an employee’s residence status and whether they opt into the new four-year FIG regime. Simplified and beneficial access: The retention and simplification of OWR will help reduce UK tax exposure on overseas workdays for non-doms who opt into the four-year FIG regime. This is especially beneficial for those who work inside and outside the UK, offering significant tax savings on overseas income.

These changes indicate a significant shift in how non-domiciled individuals will be taxed in the UK.

The introduction of the 4-year FIG regime provides temporary relief but with a finite window, necessitating strategic planning to maximise tax benefits during this period.

The continued tax on UK sources means non-doms must be careful when planning their tax around their UK income and gains.

These upcoming changes highlight the importance of seeking professional tax advice to navigate the new rules effectively and optimise non-dom tax strategies.

Non-Dom Tax Benefits

Non-domiciled status in the UK offers several non-dom tax benefits, primarily through the use of the remittance basis of taxation.

This status can lead to significant tax savings and presents various tax non-dom tax planning opportunities. Here’s an overview of the primary non-dom tax benefits.

Tax Benefit Description
Remittance Basis of Taxation Non-doms pay UK tax only on UK income and foreign income brought into the UK. Foreign income not brought to the UK remains untaxed.
Remittance Basis of Taxation Like foreign income, capital gains made by non-doms are only taxable when brought into the UK. Gains made overseas and not remitted remain untaxed.
Inheritance Tax Non-doms are only liable for UK Inheritance Tax on their UK assets. Foreign assets remain exempt unless you become deemed domiciled after 15 years of UK residence.
Income Tax The annual charge for opting into the remittance basis, required after certain residency periods, may be less than the tax on unremitted foreign income, offering financial benefits if you have substantial earnings outside the UK.

Non-Dom Tax Planning Strategies

This table covers the several tax planning strategies available to non-doms, focusing on how each can be utilised to manage or reduce tax liabilities efficiently.

Category Strategy Description
Timing of remittances Managing when and how much foreign income or gains are remitted to the UK. Significantly reduces tax exposure by controlling the timing and amount of foreign income/gains brought into the UK.
Use of offshore accounts Keeping foreign income and gains in offshore accounts. Prevents foreign income and gains from being taxed until they are needed in the UK, thus avoiding unnecessary tax.
Income splitting Splitting income between spouses. Minimises the number of people subject to the annual charge by allocating foreign income and gains to the non-dom partner. This is beneficial if one partner has significantly higher foreign income.
Investments Investing in Non-UK assets. Gains from investments outside the UK are not subject to UK tax unless remitted, offering tax-free growth outside the UK.
Overseas workday relief Claiming relief for work done outside the UK. Allows non-doms working both in the UK and overseas to claim tax relief on the portion of their employment income related to work performed outside the UK.
Investment structuring Separation of income and capital. Keeps capital and income streams separate, ensuring only necessary funds are remitted and taxed, allowing capital to grow tax-free outside the UK.
Pre-deemed domicile planning Strategies before becoming deemed domiciled. Includes rebasing assets for Capital Gains Tax purposes or restructuring ownership of foreign assets to minimise future UK tax liabilities before you are deemed domiciled.
Gifting strategies Using gifting to reduce potential Inheritance tax liability. Utilises the UK’s seven-year rule for gifting to transfer wealth without incurring Inheritance tax, especially effective before becoming deemed domiciled.
Trusts usage Placing foreign assets into trusts. Shields foreign assets from UK Inheritance tax and provides control over asset distribution without incurring immediate Inheritance tax liabilities. Trusts must be managed according to complex rules around the settlor’s status.
Restructuring ownership Restructuring ownership of assets before becoming deemed domiciled. Can include transferring assets to a spouse who is not deemed domiciled or placing assets into a trust to avoid UK Inheritance tax net.
Inheritance tax exemptions and reliefs Taking advantage of spousal exemption and other reliefs like business property relief and agricultural property relief. Spousal exemption allows tax-free asset transfers, capped at £325,000 unless the spouse elects a UK domicile for Inheritance tax purposes. Business property relief and agricultural property relief offer the potential of 100% relief on business and agricultural properties.

The tax benefits available to non-domiciled UK residents offer significant tax reduction opportunities, mainly through the use of the remittance basis.

Effective tax planning, including using foreign income and gains and timing remittances, is essential to maximising these benefits.

Given the complexity of the tax rules and the high stakes involved, non-doms should work with tax professionals specialising in international tax law to ensure compliance and optimal tax strategy.

How To Maintain Your Non-Dom Status

Maintaining your non-domiciled status in the UK requires careful management of your tax affairs and adhering to specific rules set by HMRC.

Below, we have listed the annual requirements, potential pitfalls, and how you should declare and pay your taxes in the UK as a non-dom.

Annual Requirements for Maintaining Non-Dom Status

  • Annual tax returns: Non-doms must file a Self-Assessment tax return each year. This is crucial for declaring income, claiming any reliefs, and specifying whether you opt for the remittance basis of taxation.
  • Claiming the remittance basis: Non-doms need to make this claim each year on their tax return if opting for the remittance basis. This involves completing the SA109 form along with the regular tax return.
  • Keeping accurate records: Non-doms should keep detailed records of their worldwide income and capital gains and any remittances to the UK. This is essential for tax filing purposes and to defend your tax position if HMRC queries you.
  • Managing days in the UK: Non-doms should carefully manage the number of days they spend in the UK to avoid inadvertently becoming deemed domiciled for tax purposes. Exceeding 183 days in any tax year or becoming a UK resident under the Statutory Residence Test over several years can affect your non-dom status.
  • Financial planning and advice: Regular expat tax advice is recommended to ensure that all possible tax planning strategies are considered and that you remain compliant with changing tax laws.

Potential Non-Dom Tax Pitfalls

  • Unplanned remittances: Accidentally remitting income or gains that were initially not taxed under the remittance basis can trigger unexpected tax liabilities.
  • Failing to declare worldwide income: If a non-dom opts not to use the remittance basis and fails to declare their worldwide income, they can face penalties and back taxes once HMRC discovers the omission.
  • Exceeding residency limits: Without careful planning, becoming a long-term resident can lead to being deemed domiciled in the UK, significantly changing the tax implications, particularly for Inheritance tax.

How To Declare and Pay Tax in the UK as a Non-Dom

  1. Self-Assessment tax return: You must declare your income and capital gains through the annual Self-Assessment. This includes filling out the SA100 form and potentially the SA109 form to declare non-dom status and opt for the remittance basis.
  2. Payment of tax: Taxes are usually due by January 31st, following the end of the tax year (which runs from April 6th to April 5th of the following year). Payments can be made online, via bank transfer, or through other methods provided by HMRC.
  3. Tax advice: Given the complexities involved, many non-doms use the services of tax advisors to ensure that they correctly declare their status and effectively use the available tax reliefs.
