Non-dom numbers fall after levy

The number of UK “non doms” has dropped by almost 16,000 after a £30,000 levy was introduced; according to the Telegraph.

HM Revenue & Customs said the number of UK residents claiming non-domiciled status had dropped from 139,000 to 123,000 following the launch of the £30,000 remittance basis charge in April 2008. About 5,400 people paid the £30,000 non-dom levy for 2008/9. This collected around £162m for the public purse, with £350m forecast for 2009/10.  In contrast, the Treasury estimated that non-doms pay around £7bn in each tax each year.
