Chancellor considers scrapping non-dom tax status in Budget

Chairman and Private Client partner  Robert Brodrick was quoted in FT Adviser and Spears following the news that the Chancellor was considering scrapping non-dom status ahead of the Budget. The articles have been linked below with kind permission.


Robert said: “It’s going to be difficult for the chancellor to balance the perceived unfairness of a system that allows people to live in the UK without paying tax on a worldwide basis, with encouraging ultra-high-net worth individuals to base themselves and their businesses in the UK where they will pay a significant amount of tax. The consequences of getting it wrong will be damaging to both the economy and our position as a leading global financial centre. We predict that a lot of non-doms currently based in the UK will leave and move to jurisdictions like Italy where they have introduced an extremely attractive non-dom regime.”
