Coming to the UK

If you are relocating to the UK, it is natural to focus your planning on lifestyle issues like accommodation and education. Tax can be an afterthought, particularly if you are moving in a hurry to avoid persecution or unease at home.

But it shouldn’t be.

The decisions you make prior to arriving, and the way you present your case to HMRC can dictate your UK tax liabilities from that point on. Whether you are moving for professional or personal reasons, tax is an entry level topic that should be discussed in advance. This won’t just ensure that you sleep more easily once you get here, but it will also help minimise your global tax exposure in the most efficient and effective way.
