Non-doms are entitled to claim the ‘remittance basis’ of taxation. In short, this means that any income from assets held abroad is only taxed in the UK if it is remitted to the UK. Foreign assets are exempt from UK inheritance tax. The Labour Party has stated its intention to ‘abolish non-dom tax status’ and introduce a shorter-term scheme for temporary residents.

What are the problems with how non-doms are currently taxed? Should the current regime be scrapped and, if so, what should replace it? When and how should the foreign income of people who are temporarily in the UK be taxed? Does the UK need tax benefits for new arrivals to be competitive with other countries?
