Personal Tax

The United Kingdom’s personal income tax laws are comprehensive, taxing UK domiciled residents on their worldwide income. Special rules apply to those persons who qualify as resident but not domiciled in the U.K. Those ‘non-dom’ rules offer significant benefits to expats.

For non-residents the UK levies taxation on U.K sourced income unless a Double Taxation Agreement provides for an exemption. Whether you are in employment or in business our specialist accounting and tax team can ensure that you receive the best advice in relation to tax deductions available, to offset the impost of the U.K. high personal tax rates.

A myriad of complex rules apply to foreign income derived by UK domiciled residents – including income derived by Controlled Foreign companies and Controlled Foreign Trusts. In addition the requirements of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act has made tax reporting and compliance a critical issue for U.K domiciled individuals-where significant administrative penalties can be levied by the HMRC for non-compliance or late lodgement.

The complexities of international tax compliance can create significant challenges for those who have not been well advised or who are simply not aware of their obligations.
