Offshore structures can play an important strategic role in the control and protection of family wealth in the modern world. Opportunities should not be overlooked.

The deadlines for tax returns to be submitted to HMRC are as follows:. Married persons are treated separately for tax purposes, and spouses are individually responsible for completing their own tax return.
Their tax liabilities are calculated separately. Just after the end of the tax year, a tax return or notice to file should be received from HMRC if neither are received and a tax return is required then the taxpayer must notify HMRC by the above deadline — 5 October following the end of the tax year. The return must be completed and filed with HMRC. The return requires, inter alia, a statement of income and capital gains for the tax year that has just ended.
If the filing failure continues for more than 3 months after the filing date, and HMRC decide that a penalty is due and give written notice of the date from which the penalty is due, a daily penalty of GBP10 may be charged. This penalty may run for a maximum of 90 days from any date specified in the notice that is later than 3 months after the filing date the date of the notification itself is irrelevant.
The daily penalty ceases to accrue if the failure is remedied before the expiry of the 90 day period. If the failure continues for more than 6 months after the filing date there is a further fixed penalty of either GBP or 5 percent of the tax liability that would have been shown on the return whichever is the greater.
If the failure continues for 12 months after the filing date a further penalty is imposed. For a non-deliberate failure to file a return, the penalty is the greater of GBP or 5 percent of the tax liability. A deliberate and concealed withholding of the tax return can attract penalties of percent of the tax liability in some cases involving offshore matters see below , the penalty can exceed percent of the tax — percent in some cases. Smith was waiting for some of their financial information for the year to arrive and so put the notice to one side and subsequently forgot about it.
They then failed to submit their tax return by the 31 January deadline. As they were very busy with work, they failed to notice the reminders from HMRC and notices of the penalties accruing and did not submit their tax return until 15 February Their tax return showed a liability for the year of GBP15, The penalty regime for inaccuracies looks broadly as follows this does not include the new Failure to Correct FTC penalty regime which is outside the scope of this article :.
Where in a given range the penalty will actually fall is determined by what HMRC call the quality of disclosure and includes:. Again there are increased penalties of up to percent in cases involving offshore matters. An offshore matter is an inaccuracy, failure to notify or deliberate withholding of information that leads to a loss of revenue that is charged on or relates to:.
Where the tax return shows additional tax is payable, it is due by 31 January following the end of the tax year i. In such cases, the individual will generally also be required to make prepayments of tax for the following tax year.
Any final, balancing payment subsequently found to be due must be made by the following 31 January.
Additionally, if the tax is paid more than 30 days late, a penalty of 5 percent of the tax unpaid is charged. Another 5 percent is charged if the delay exceeds 6 months, and again another 5 percent penalty is charged if the delay exceeds 12 months.
It should also be noted that strict liability criminal offences have recently been introduced into the UK tax code in relation to offshore income, assets and activities.
The offences cover failure to notify chargeability, failure to deliver a tax return and inaccuracies in documents e. There are particular safe-harbors such as the GBP25, threshold and the focus is generally on income not reportable under the common reporting standard CRS.
This is a backward looking penalty and any irregularities in respect of offshore matters in tax years up to 5 April not disclosed to HMRC before 30 September will be subject to FTC penalties up to percent of the tax. Specialist advice should be sought. UK rental income the remarks above concerning UK residents apply equally to them. As a general rule, non-resident individuals are not normally subject to UK capital gains tax on disposals.
However, disposals of UK residential property are one exception. From 6 April , the U. K introduced a non-resident CGT NRCGT charge on gains made on the disposal of UK residential property, and this was extended to cover non- residential UK property whether held directly or indirectly if certain conditions are met with effect from 6 April Unlike the reporting rules outlined above for tax returns, such disposals must be reported online to HMRC within 30 days of conveyance.
In most cases the tax must also be paid within the same 30 day period but the tax may be deferred to the normal 31 January payment date for those already filing UK tax returns. What are the current income tax rates for residents and non-residents in the United Kingdom? This is the amount of income upon which no income tax is paid. The PA can be restricted in certain circumstances e. Higher rate taxpayers will have a reduced allowance of GBP The taxation of non-doms was significantly amended in the Finance Bill and the changes came into effect from 6 April Broadly speaking this means that a non-dom now becomes deemed domiciled in the UK once they have been resident in the U.
K for 15 out of the previous 20 tax years. Once deemed domiciled, the individual can no longer claim the remittance basis of taxation unless subject to the GBP2, de minimis — see below and is liable to UK IHT on their worldwide assets.
The other main change is targeted at those born in the UK and who had a UK domicile of origin but now claim to have a foreign domicile of choice. Under the old rules, such individuals would benefit from the same UK tax treatment as other non-doms, notwithstanding their former links to the UK. Under the new rules however, while UK resident, they are treated as deemed domiciled for UK tax purposes even though they assert a foreign domicile of choice under general principles.
As such, the individual can no longer claim the remittance basis of taxation unless subject to the GBP2, de minimis — see below and is liable to UK IHT on their worldwide assets subject to a very short grace period. The impact on those who fall within the scope of this change i. UK resident, born in the UK with a UK domicile of origin but asserting a foreign domicile of choice is likely to be materially adverse and advice should be sought immediately.
For those who are not deemed domiciled, the remittance basis remains largely unchanged; the rules are set out in broad terms below.
For those who are deemed domiciled but under the GBP2, de minimis the remittance basis remains available. For those who were born in the UK with a UK domicile of origin and who currently assert a foreign domicile of choice, the new rules mean they will deemed domiciled for UK tax purposes while they are UK resident. This is notwithstanding their foreign domicile under general law.
As such the remittance basis will not be available to these individuals subject to the GBP2, de minimis. Advice should be sought immediately as there may be other adverse UK tax implications. For those for whom the remittance basis is available, non-UK income and gains may be taxed, if the individual wishes, on the remittance basis of taxation rather than on the arising basis.
That is to say, such amounts are not taxed as they arise but only if and when they are remitted to taken into or used in or brought to the United Kingdom. There are stringent and complex anti-avoidance rules around what constitutes a remittance. This is a highly complex subject. It is beyond the scope of this publication to go into much detail on this topic, as to do so could prove misleading; specialist advice should be taken on any particular situation.
However, the following should be noted:. Non-residents are taxed at the same rates as residents, however, they may not be entitled to any UK personal allowances. Specific anti-avoidance legislation exists to prevent individuals avoiding UK tax by becoming non-UK resident for a short period and realizing gains or receiving income while non-resident.
Broadly the rules mean that income or gains accruing, realized or remitted during a period of temporary non-residence come back into charge in the year of return. What constitutes a period of temporary non-residence is discussed further below. If the taxpayer remains non- resident for longer than a temporary period as defined then the anti-avoidance rules do not apply. Importantly, not all income and gains are within the scope of the rules. For example, only gains realized on assets held at the date of departure are within the scope of the rules.
Likewise only certain types of income are within scope, such as distributions for closely-held companies etc. While the rules are conceptually straight forward, they are very specific in terms of what is within scope and what is not; therefore we recommend that advice is taken before the date of departure from the UK It is not unusual for individuals to leave the UK expecting to remain non-resident long enough to fall outside the anti-avoidance rules only to return early due to a change in circumstance.
Consequently, it is generally helpful to understand the implications in advance. For these special rules not to apply, the period of non-residence must exceed 5 years, that is, a minimum period of 5 calendar years plus 1 day. For example, 4 May to 4 May For the purposes of taxation, how is an individual defined as a resident of the United Kingdom?
Our flowchart can be found here. PDF KB. An individual will be classed as non-UK resident if one of the three automatic overseas tests applies there are a further two automatic overseas tests which are only applicable when the individual dies during the relevant tax year :.
If any one of the automatic overseas tests is met, the individual is classed as non-UK resident for the tax year and does not need to consider the SRT any further. Otherwise, the automatic UK residence tests have to be considered. An individual will be classed as UK resident for the relevant tax year if they have not met any of the automatic overseas tests and they meet any one of the following three automatic UK residence tests there is a further test applicable only if the individual dies during the relevant tax year :.
If the individual has met none of the automatic overseas tests and none of the automatic UK tests, they must then turn to the sufficient ties test to determine their UK residence status.
To determine whether an individual has sufficient ties to be regarded as a UK resident for the relevant tax year, a number of factors are considered in conjunction with the number of days an individual spends in the United Kingdom. Broadly speaking, the more ties an individual has the less days they can spend in the UK before becoming UK resident.
The combination of the number of ties the individual has with the UK during the relevant tax year and the number of days the individual is in the UK determines whether the individual is UK resident for that tax year.
The criteria are as follows:. The combination of the number of ties the individual has with the UK and the number of days the individual is in the UK during the relevant tax year determines whether the individual is UK resident for that tax year. Please see the commentary above re the remittance basis and recent changes to the taxation of non-doms. The majority of foreign nationals employed by foreign employers who are working on secondment to the UK will not be regarded as domiciled in the United Kingdom i.
As explained above, it is not anticipated that many assignees will fall to be treated as deemed domiciled under the new rules. If an employee works in the United Kingdom for a period of less than a year in total, and spends less than days in the United Kingdom in any one UK tax year, the employee will be treated for tax purposes as a STBV.
Such an employee is liable to UK tax on their remuneration attributable to duties performed in the United Kingdom, even if the employer is overseas.
Such an employee is likely to be non-resident and consequently not taxable on remuneration relating to non-UK duties. Certain UK treaties have other conditions that need to be met so the particular treaty needs to be considered. For the purpose of counting days for the day test in a treaty, any day on which an individual is present in the United Kingdom will count as a day. It is the stated intention of HMRC to deny treaty relief in cases where a UK entity is viewed as the economic employer.
Under the automatic overseas tests in the SRT, an individual will always be non-UK resident if they do not spend 16 or more days in the UK during a UK tax year, whether or not they have previously been UK resident.

R ecently, the G-7 countries together with institutions such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD , the Financial Stability Forum, and the Financial Action Task Force have expressed concern over money laundering, inadequate banking supervision, and unfair tax practices in offshore financial centers. Given the multidisciplinary nature of the concerns expressed, this paper discusses the tax aspects, with a view to providing greater clarity and understanding for those interested in offshore centers, particularly for those who are not tax specialists. The recent OECD-led effort to curb tax havens makes this discussion timely. It appears that the current anti-tax-haven efforts have developed some momentum, but such efforts are hardly new: the same concerns were expressed 20 years ago, and even earlier.
