Residence and Domicile Review Service

For contractors arriving in the UK

If you have been working abroad and are returning to the UK to work, there are some taxation matters that you should be aware of. For instance, did you know that you may be required to pay UK tax on any income you’ve earned abroad, even if tax has already been paid in the country it was earned?

Did you know that if you are a resident of the UK but not domiciled in the UK, you may not have to pay UK tax on your foreign income and gains, saving you up to 40%?

Taxation matters are difficult at the best of times, but they don’t need to be.

Our Residence and Domicile review service has been designed for contractors who are entering the UK to work and have either received income overseas during the tax year of their arrival or are still in receipt of income arising from overseas. It provides guidance and advice to ensure that the impact of your overseas financial affairs are dealt with in the most tax efficient way in the UK.

Our service includes:

  • An eligibility review for split tax year, for the year of arrival. If successful you won’t need to pay UK tax, of up to 40%, on any of your worldwide income which arose before you came to the UK.
  • It provides information for returning ex-pats, regarding what further payments of National Insurance Contributions would need to be made, to ensure you receive the full state pension.
  • A review of domicile to determine how your overseas income should be taxed in the UK and what the best option for you may be.
