The following Personal Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
Fundamental changes to the tax regime for non-domiciled individuals were introduced from 6 April 2017. They involve deeming an individual to beUK domiciled for tax purposes even though they may benon-domiciled in the UK under general law. The rules apply for income tax, capital gains tax (CGT) and inheritance tax (IHT).
Although the tests are slightly different for IHT compared to income tax and CGT (see below), broadly an individual is deemed UK domiciled if they:

Children of a father who is non-domiciled in the UK under general law are normally also non-domiciled, even if the father is deemed by these rules to beUK domiciled. Similarly, the child’s domicile status is assessed independently, such that if the child meets
