Whether you are advising British expats or UK residents spending time abroad, knowledge of a taxpayer’s residence is crucial to understanding their UK taxation. It is no longer possible to simply spend time abroad to escape capital gains tax and as HMRC scrutinises taxpayer’s residence more and more, advisers need a solid foundation on which to build their advice.

How this will affect your client’s ‘days’ for the statutory residence test is also crucial to understand. Finally, in this practical and informative session, the most complex aspect of the statutory residence test, the split year rules are explored. There are eight separate ‘cases’ which all have their own conditions and criteria.

This 6-part modular webinar series will guide you through both the legislation and recent case law including recent HMRC announcements, introducing you beyond the basics to the planning tips and bear traps of the statutory residence test.
