Foreign students in firing line of non-dom reforms

Students from abroad could be unintended victims of £30,000 levy

Migrant workers and foreign students could be the unintended victims of the
changes to non-dom tax rules, a campaign group has warned.

The Low Incomes Tax Reform Group told the FT that low-paid workers
and students from abroad could find themselves caught in the complex and
uncertain reforms of tax rules for foreign residents.

The lobby group, backed financially by the Chartered Institute of Taxation,
said the consultation on levying a £30,000 levy on non-domiciled taxpayers who
want to have foreign income made exempt from UK tax has ignored the fact that as
many as 7 million people in the UK could be non-domiciled.

The group said that informing low-paid migrants and students of the changes
to tax rules would be ‘a massive educational challenge’.

The reforms, announced in the 2007 PBR, were menat to target wealthy
residents with large income generated offshore.
