While, as a result of the general election, the Finance Bill, published in March 20th, will now be divided into two Finance Acts, virtually all of the relevant provisions will be retrospective to April 6th 2017.

It contains the most important changes to the taxation of foreign domiciliaries for several years.

HMRC has also slipped in other provisions particularly relating to offshore trusts and companies which also affect UK domiciliaries and non-UK residents.

Even after the Finance Bill becomes law, much can be done by way of forward planning by those not yet UK domiciled (or deemed domiciled) or not yet UK resident.

The proposed changes to the rules re capital payments from offshore trusts have been shelved for the moment but will inevitably return in one form or another. There is thus an extended window to forestall their application.

A panel of barristers will discuss tax planning in the light of the Finance Bill and likely future changes.
