Non Resident and Offshore Tax Planning
by Lee Hadnum

Becoming non-resident is widely viewed to be the most effective way of avoiding tax. In many cases, those who choose to move their assets offshore and become non-resident achieve huge savings on their taxes. It is extremely important, however, to ensure that before taking such a major step you are aware of all the dangers and pitfalls that go hand-in-hand with such rewarding tax benefits.


This tax guide is designed to help the following groups of people:

  • Those interested in attaining non-resident status to avoid income tax and CGT in the UK.

  • Anyone currently living abroad or planning to live abroad for most of the year.

  • Those currently working or planning to work outside the UK.

  • Those interested in minimizing tax using offshore companies and trusts.

  • Any foreign nationals currently living in the UK, wishing to use their status to minimize tax.
