Non-doms pay £9bn in tax, say latest HMRC figures


Non-domiciled taxpayers in Britain paid more than £9bn to the Exchequer in 2014/15, an increase of 1 per cent from the previous financial year.

Figures released by HMRC yesterday show that 121,300 listed non-doms paid £9.3bn of income, capital gains tax and national insurance.

Non-doms are UK residents who claim a different domicile, meaning they pay no tax on this non-UK money unless it is brought into the country.
