The following Personal Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
A person’s liability to UK tax is determined by his residence and domicile status. From 6 April 2013, a person’s residence is determined using the statutory residence test. See the Determining residence status (2013/14 onwards) guidance note. For details of domicile and why it is important for UK tax purposes, see the Domicile guidance note.
