It has long been a feature of UK taxation that an individual’s liability to UK tax has been determined by reference to both their residence and domicile status.
The changes to overseas workday relief (OWR) that accompanied the introduction of the statutory residence test (SRT) in April 2013 changed the impact of domicile on claiming OWR. The rules regarding temporarily non-resident individuals were also changed by the introduction of the SRT.
This guidance note looks primarily at the effect of residence and domicile on the taxation of an employee from his individual viewpoint. Residence and domicile also have different consequences for capital gains tax and inheritance tax but inheritance matters are not covered in this module.

FA 2013, Sch 45 contains full details of these tests and guidance on HMRC’s interpretation of these tests can be found in their manual at RDRM11000 onwards.
