Business and Other Briefings

PwC: The publication of the Finance Bill last week also coincided with other announcements from HMRC on issues affecting residency which will have wide ranging effects.  

Perhaps the most significant announcement indicated that HMRC would challenge the residency position on non UK residents if they were to spend more than 10 days working back in the UK during a year, potentially subjecting their entire income to UK tax.  A great many individuals who have considered themselves to be non resident for a number of years may find their residency positioned challenged.
