German industry pressures Darling on non-doms

German industrialists urge chancellor to 'rethink' non-dom levy

Pressure is mounting on Alistair Darling to rethink his decision to levy a
£30,000 charge on non-domiciled taxpayers.

German Industry UK, a lobby group representing 250 German companies in the
UK, has described the decision as ‘highly regrettable’ and urged the chancellor
to reconsider.

The group, the FT reports, has called on the government to delay the
new policy and open a consultation on the changes.

‘It would also grant us the time to get our financial affairs in order, which
is only fair,’ the group said in a letter to Darling.

It is estimated that there are between 10,000 and 20,000 Germans working in
the UK.
