hi hmrc admin, I have interest income of 2500 in a given tax year and I don't plan to bring this money back to UK. I am currently residing in uk for last 16 years and working full time and paying UK tax on all UK income. I am on 40% tax rate. I was born in India and my parents are born in India, I plan to retire and live back in India after my retirement, does this mean I am a non-domiciled resident? if I am a non-domiciled resident and have 2500 interest income in a tax year, does this mean that upto 2000 i don't pay any tax and I pay 40%tax on remainder 500? OR since my foreign income is more than 2000, I pay 40% tax on all 2500 income? can you help me with above questions please? thank you

Hi nnectiondue,

As you have been in the UK for 16 years you are not classed as non domiciled.

You therefore pay tax on all your worldwide income.

See guidance here: 

Deemed Domicile rules

Thank you.

Hi connectiondue,

If your wife is resident in the UK, but not domiciled, then any foreign income not remitted to the UK is not taxable.  

If that income is remitted to the UK in a future tax year, then it will be taxable in that tax year.

Helpsheet HS264 gives advice on the remittance basis:

Remittance basis 2022 (HS264)
 
There is also some guidance at:

Residence, domicile and the remittance basis: RDR1

An individual is deemed domiciled in the UK, if they are resident in the UK for at least 15 of the last 20 years immediately before the relevant tax year. 

When resident and domiciled / deemed domiciled, you need to report your world wide income. 

Deemed Domicile rules

Thank you.

Hello, Is my status 'deemed domicile' if I've been a UK resident since 2008? My father's home is in India however my permanent home is in the UK. Also, does that mean I've to report any overseas income over £300 in my self assessment i.e. the non-domicile rule of £2000 exemption does not apply to me? Thanks, Vineeta

Hi,

You will be deemed domicile if you were born in the UK with UK domicile of origin and UK resident in 2021 to 2022 tax year, or you have been UK resident for at least 15 of the previous 20 tax years and UK resident in 2021 to 2022 tax year. You need to report any amount of foreign income that you receive.

Thank you.

Hello HMRC, I have interest income recieved in India which I don't plan to bring to UK. I am currently residing and working full time in UK since 2015 and paying UK tax on my UK income. I was born in India and have no other family in the UK. Both my parents were born in India. I am an OIC card holder, having a Portuguese passport. I do not own a house in the UK and plan to retire in India after my retirement, does this mean I am a non-domiciled resident? Please could you advise if I still need to pay tax on interest income earned in India. Many thanks!

Hi,

A person who is resident in the UK and domiciled or deemed domiciled, is taxable on their world-wide income, on the arising basis. This may entail the submission of a Self Assessment Tax Return. A person who is resident, but not domiciled in the UK, is also taxed on their world-wide income on the arising basis, or they can elect not to remit a foreign income to the UK, that arises while they are resident in the UK.  

If they choose not to bring the income to the UK, then it is not taxable in the UK in that tax year. If they choose to remit the income to the UK in a later year, then it would be taxable in that later tax year. If the income was generated in a tax year when they were not UK resident, this would not be taxable when brought to the UK.

To claim the remittance basis is criteria for completing a Self Assessment Tax Return. The residence supplementary page is SA109, is where you declare the use of the remittance basis and the amount of income not remitted to the UK. Tax returns can also be submitted online, however, to submit a tax return that included a residence section, required the purchase of 3rd party software.  

A list of suppliers can be found at:

Self Assessment commercial software suppliers

Thank you.

Dear HMRC, Thank you for your response! Further to what you mentioned above, If I arrived in the UK in the year 2015, does that mean I am a UK resident but non domicile? Do I still need to complete and submit a self assessment even if I am not remitting the earnings to UK? Please could you clarify.

Hello, In the discussion thread, HMRC32 mentioned"... The residence supplementary page is SA109, is where you declare the use of the remittance basis and the amount of income not remitted to the UK."" Does it mean that even if we are filing on remittance basis and not remitting the money into UK, we still need to declare the foreign income amount? If yes, may I know where to put in the amount ? The question 34 and 35 are related to nominated income and capital gain, which I though is relevant only if we are paying RBC? Please kind advise.

Hi AnnaSolovina,

Under the Remittance Basis of taxation, foreign income is only taxable if it is remitted to the UK. The following guidance explains exactly what is meant by 'remitted to the UK'.                                                  
Remittance basis 2021 (HS264)

Thank you.

Thank you for your reply. If I am UK resident, non domicile, permanently staying in the UK and run my hotel business Ukraine. I own apartments which I rent as hotels and managing everting by myself. All the property is located outside UK and all the income is generated outside the UK but physically I am staying in UK and managing from UK. The question is wether this income is classed as foreign income and I can claim remittance basis on this income? Many thanks

Hi,

You only declare the income you are remitting so anything abroad that is not remitted is not included.

See further guidance at:

2. Completing the ‘Foreign’ pages

Thank you.

Hi,

Any income arising outside of the UK, is classed as foreign income.  

Under the arising basis, it would be taxable in the UK.  

To use the remittance basis, you need to complete a self assessment tax return, to claim the remittance basis and to include the amount of income not being remitted to the UK.

Thank you.

Hello and thank you for help I have a question If I am UK resident, non domicile, permanently staying in the UK, run my hotel business in Ukraine from UK and registered as self employed in Ukraine, can I claim for my income I get in Ukraine remittance basis or I should report my foreign self employment income on the self employment page of the tax return? May I not pay tax on this income if it’s not remitted in the UK being a solo trader in Ukraine or this income is arising only and will be taxed even if I am non domicile? Many thanks
