Non-doms pay average tax of £48k a year

The 123,000 people with non-domicile status paid £5.9bn a year in tax last year

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.
