Domicile Reviews

If you live or work in The Middle East, or have significant worldwide assets, one of the most important factors to consider when tax planning is your domicile.

Domicile is a legal concept that tends to apply to your ‘homeland’. It’s a fairly adhesive concept and generally applies to the country where you consider your roots to be. Domicile is acquired at birth and is generally determined by your father’s domicile or homeland. It’s a separate tax consideration than your nationality, residence or citizenship and is not automatically reflective of the country you are currently living in.

Your domicile matters because it determines your exposure to UK tax, most notably Inheritance Tax (IHT). It is important to understand your domicile status as it can have a significant effect on your tax position. For example, if you are living overseas, and have done for many years, you will still have to pay IHT on your worldwide assets if you have a UK domicile.
