Liability to UK tax depends on two key factors: residence and domicile. Residence refers to the individual’s tax status on a year by year basis. Domicile is the place which a person regards as his true home. See the Residence ― overview and Domicile guidance notes.
An individual who is not resident and / or not domiciled or deemed domiciled in the UK may be entitled to some tax reliefs and exemptions on his UK employment earnings.
Up until 5 April 2013, a taxpayer’s ordinary residence status was the third key factor. Ordinary residence arises as a result of a settled purpose and so looks at the position over the longer term.
