New UK Non-Residence Tax Rules And Their Implications For Expats


Oliver Heslop

As the expatriate tax director of Global Expatriate Tax Services Ltd and the official UK expat tax partner here at Expat Focus, I advise a large number of UK nationals based in the Middle East. I often first meet these clients by email and they ask “What is UK tax non-residence and does it matter?” Answer – Yes, it is vital! If you work abroad and you fail the UK non-residence tests, the UK tax can tax your total global earnings (including Middle East salary). A major tax advantage is lost.

UK Expat Tax Specialist Oliver Heslop talks to Expat Focus


Oliver Heslop

In this edition of the podcast (download here or listen online from 07:40 onwards here) we talk to UK expat tax specialist and Expat Focus partner Oliver Heslop about some of the basic issues British expats, or those who have moved to the UK from abroad, should be aware of regarding UK taxation. Oliver worked in Arthur Andersen's expat teams for over 10 years before taking an expatriate advisory position with Ernst & Young in 2007. He joined Shipleys as a principal in 2010 as a highly experienced UK tax specialist dealing with cross border issues arising from the movement of people between different countries and businesses. Oliver works with a variety of expatriate clients - some are large multinationals with secondees in 30 or more different countries while others may have one or two executives appointed to senior positions abroad who require tax planning.
