deemed domiciled

Postby tiengodue » Sat Sep 05, 2020 10:05 am

Hello,

I have a query regarding tbe conceot of deemed domiciled.
Do the 15 years out if 20 apply to tax residency or can individual still
be deemed domiciled in the UK even if, being a dual tax resident, the OECD tie break has established residency in a foreign country for income tax purposes for the 15 years?

regards

Deemed domicile for UK tax purposes is determined under UK domestic law.

An individual resident in the UK for at least 15 out of the previous 20 tax years will be deemed domiciled.

If that individual is also resident for the same period albeit under the laws of a different country then the individual will be dual resident.
However, this does not remove his deemed domicile status for UK tax purposes.

There are a small number of inheritance tax treaties that deal with dual domicile which can change a deemed domicile for IHT purposes (but not income tax / CGT).

As far as I'm aware the India and Italy DTTs still work to override the deemed domicile provisions - are there any others that work?

I've heard of 4 that our internal training mentioned. Italy and India were two that spring to mind, not sure of the other two or if I just misremembered

The UK has IHT DTAs with Pakistan, India, Italy and France all of which were made when estate duty applied (but still continue not apply). The term "domicile" in each of these DTAs does not include "deemed domicile".

Deemed domicile status is relevant to the other UK IHT DTAs.
