Residence, Citizenship & Moving to UK

Expats moving to the UK do so for various reasons. Whatever your motivation may be, your move to the UK holds the advantage that you won’t need to learn a new language from scratch. InterNations has lots of useful information on moving to the UK, from life in London to UK visa regulations.

Many of its characteristics make moving to the UK an attractive option. As a business destination, the United Kingdom, composed of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, has one major asset which outweighs its counterparts in other European countries with similar living standards and working conditions: the language. After all, English is the international language of business and trade taught in schools across the globe.

The UK is a densely populated country, with a considerable share of its roughly 64.5 million people living in the south of the UK. Just over 80% of the UK’s population consists of city dwellers. Great parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland are less urbanized and less affluent leading to people leaving for the UK’s southern regions.

London — The Center of Everything

The country’s capital, with 8.6 million inhabitants being by far the largest city in the UK, is the seat of the national government. It is also the leading financial and commercial center of the EU: in 2014 London hosted 40 percent of the European headquarters of top companies worldwide.London is truly multi-cultural with people moving to the UK’s capital from all over the world, and generally an exciting place to be. Its vibrant arts and entertainment scene caters to all tastes, from classical to popular, mainstream to fringe, and from retro to avant-garde. Needless to say, the party animal in you will not be disappointed.

Despite its size, London’s green spaces make it quite a pleasant place to live. The soaring prices for property, however, are one of the reasons why many families — even those with an above-average income — prefer to live in the suburbs of Greater London when moving to the UK.

Taxation in United Kingdom

Corporate taxation in UK 2016

Residence – A company is UK resident if it is incorporated in the UK or its place of central management and control is in the UK

Basis – A UK resident company is subject to corporation tax on worldwide profits and gains, with credit given for overseas taxes paid. Foreign profits and losses (including those from certain capital assets) arising from a permanent establishment (PE) of a UK resident company may be excluded by making an irrevocable election. The effect of the election may be deferred where the PE has incurred a loss. Anti-diversion rules based on the CFC rules may restrict the profits that can be excluded from the charge to UK tax by virtue of the election. A non-resident company is subject to tax only in respect of UK-source profits, which include the income of a UK PE of the nonresident, income and certain gains from UK real estate, certain UK-source interest income and gains on assets used for purposes of a PE’s trade.

Compliance for corporations:

  • Tax year – The tax year is the shorter of 12 months of the period for which the accounts are prepared
  • Consolidated returns – All companies file separate tax returns. However, losses may be “group relieved” between UK group companies (broadly, where one is a 75% subsidiary of another or both are 75% subsidiaries of the same corporate parent in terms of share ownership, rights to income and rights on a winding up, taking account of direct and indirect holdings). There are other group rules that apply to capital gains allowing, for example, the intragroup transfer of assets at no gain/no loss for tax purposes or the transfer of gains/losses between group members.
  • Filling requirements – The UK operates a self-assessment regime. Large companies pay tax in quarterly installments starting in month seven of their financial year (as from April 2017, the first quarterly installment will be due in month three of the financial year). The tax return is due to be filled within 12 months of the period. Electronic filling is mandatory for all company tax returns.
  • Penalties – Companies are liable to a fixed penalty of £100 for failure to file a tax return by the due date, plus an additional £100 if the return is not submitted within three months of the due date. Further penalties may apply to returns filled at least six months late. Tax-geared penalties can be sought for matters such as tax returns that are carelessly or deliberately incorrect. Interest is paid on late paid tax.
  • Rulings – UK tax legislation includes a number of anti-avoidance provisions for which advance statutory clearance may be sought. Also, under a non-statutory clearance procedure, the UK tax authorities’ view of the tax consequences of specific transaction can be sought, on a named basis, with full disclosure, where there is both commercial significance and material uncertainty.

Tax authorities: HM Revenue & Customs

  • Domicile is a concept distinct from residence. An individual’s domicile status may be determined by the domicile of his/her parents or can be acquired by choice.
  • UK resident but not non-UK domiciled taxpayers can enjoy favorable tax treatment in respect of income and assets outside the UK.
  • New rules are expected to be introduced as from 6 April 2017 that restrict non-domiciled status for tax purposes, including a “deemed domicile” rule for income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax purposes after 15 years of residence, and individuals born in the UK and UK domiciled at birth will be UK domiciled for tax purposes whenever they are resident in the UK.

 over GBP 150,000 45% (effective rate on dividends of 30.6%
  • As from 6th April 2016, a new annual dividend tax allowance of GBP 5,000 has been introduced. The new rates of tax on dividend income exceeding the allowance will be between 7.5% – 31.8%
  • Currently, dividends from UK companies and many non-UK companies attract a non-payable tax credit. (The credit is not available where the individual’s holding in a non-UK company is 10% or more and the company is located in a jurisdiction that has not concluded an appropriate tax treaty with the UK). No credit will be available as from 2016-2017.

Social security payments in the UK:

  • National Insurance Contributions (NIC) are payable by employers, employees and self-employed individuals. For example, for 2015/16, weekly paid employees pay NIC at a rate of 12% on weekly income between GPB 155 and GPB 815 and 2% on income exceeding this amount. For employers, NIC is payable at a rate of 13.8% on all income excess of GPB 156 per week for 2015/16.
  • Self-employed individuals pay NIC at a rate of 9% on annual income between GPB 8,060 and GPB 42,385 and 2% on the excess, together with a fixed charge of GPB 2.75 per week for 2015/15 (GPB 2.80 for 2015/16)

  • As from April 2017, a family home allowance will be introduced, provided the property is left to descendants. This will be added to the existing GPB 325,000 threshold, meaning the total tax-free allowance for a surviving spouse/civil partner will be GPB 1,000,000 by 2020/21. The allowance gradually will be withdrawn for estates worth more than GBP 2 million.
  • Transfers between spouses and civil partners, during life or upon death, generally are exempt from inheritance tax unless only the donor spouse has a UK domicile.
  • For non-UK domiciled individuals, only UK property is subject to inheritance tax, although long-term residence (17 out of the last 20 tax years, reducing to 15 years as from 6 April 2017) can result in deemed UK domicile (for inheritance tax purposes only).

Net wealth/net worth tax in the UK:

  • No

Compliance for individuals in the UK:

  • Tax year is 6th April to the following 5 April
  • Tax on employment income is withheld by the employer under the Pay As You Earn (PAYE) system and remitted to the tax authorities.
