NON-DOMS ARE paying an average of £48k a year in tax each, the Treasury has revealed.
There were 123,000 people claiming non-domicile tax status, who paid £5.9bn in tax.
Chancellor George Osborne had been expected to announce a crackdown on non-doms in next month’s Budget. But Treasury sources have indicated this is unlikely, as the government is reluctant to lose the revenue generated by the non-doms.
The Labour government introduced a levy of £30,000 per year in 2008 for people from overseas who wish to enjoy the non-dom tax benefits.
Some 5,400 non-doms paid the £30,000 charge in 2008/2009.
