Over the past decade, there has been increased attention on the resident status of British expats.
Claiming UK non-residence is much more difficult than in previous times, especially with recent changes to legislation and a number of high-profile tax cases. As a result, it’s important to ensure that you protect your residency status in order to avoid exposing yourself to unnecessary UK tax charges.
The Statutory Residence Test is used to determine whether you fall into the UK tax net. The test itself provides a framework, with a set of rules or conditions which need to be worked through every year to decide your UK tax status. Our tax planning specialists can help you navigate this complex test and assist in other areas, including completing Tax Returns, and calculating any tax charges on your UK assets, such as property.
Our tax planning team always works closely with our financial and estate planning specialists, to ensure a comprehensive service.
