The following Personal Tax guidance note 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 be UK domiciled for tax purposes even though he may be non-domiciled in the UK under general law. The rules apply for income tax, CGT and IHT.
Whilst both these measures are good news for the non-domiciliary, they are not available for all non-domiciliaries and the rules contain traps for the unwary. Great care is needed in advising clients.
This guidance note explores rebasing for CGT in detail. For a discussion of the broader rules as they apply to individuals, including the IHT changes, see the Deemed domicile for income tax and capital gains tax (2017/18 onwards) guidance note. You are recommended to read that guidance note before continuing.
Note that the professional bodies have compiled some guidance for advisers on CGT rebasing in the form of questions and answers. This was published in March 2018 and has been sent to HMRC for review. It is hoped that the revised version, which includes comments from HMRC will be published later in the year.
As the understanding of who qualifies for CGT rebasing depends on familiarity with the deemed domicile tests for income tax and CGT, they are set out here.
