Expatriate tax has always been a difficult area. HMRC have specialist teams dealing with this area as they realise that increased resources devoted to risk areas, both in terms of training and computer software, reap increased rewards. It is evident from the enquiries being raised and the recent changes in this area that HMRC are tightening up their approach.
2013 is a year of really fundamental change with the introduction of the new statutory residence test which operates from 6 April 2013 and which impacts in a major way on expats. It is designed to give certainty with a defined answer but the complexity means that clients need to be very careful with the detailed provisions which may not give the result desired. Additionally there are major changes with the abolition of ordinary residence and the codification of the split year treatment for arrivers and leavers.
