Reform of the taxation of non-domiciled individuals - LITRG response

Published on 9 September 2011

A major hurdle for low-income migrants to the UK is a lack of understanding of the tax rules they will face on arrival, compounded by almost non-existent avenues of advice. Unable to afford professional fees, most will fail to comply, not through unwillingness but unawareness.

LITRG would have preferred to see a fundamental rethink of the tax rules applicable to migrants to the UK, even to the extent that domicile is no longer factored into the equation. However, as we understand that is unlikely to happen, we have made various recommendations in this response which aim to minimise the tax complexities for those on the lowest incomes.
