Further detail on the changes to the taxation of non-UK domiciled individuals (and non-UK resident structures owning UK residential property), to be introduced from 6 April 2017, is unlikely to be known before Parliament returns on 5 September 2016, at the very earliest.
There has been speculation that the changes, announced in the UK 2015 Summer Budget, may be delayed by the vote to leave the EU. However, in the absence of any firm confirmation, it would be sensible to assume the changes will come into force from 6 April 2017, as originally announced.
Active consideration should therefore be given now by all those potentially affected.
