How many non-doms are there in the UK?
– In the year ending 2020, 75,700 people filled in a tax return in which they declared themselves to be non-domiciled – down from 78,600 the previous year and 137,000 in 2008.
– Of the 75,700 in 2019/20, however, only 62,200 were actually resident in Britain.
– In spite of their non-domiciled status, which does not oblige them to pay tax on foreign earnings, the 75,700 people still paid £7.85bn in income tax, capital gains tax and national insurance.
– The highest number of non-doms in 2019 were resident in London (45,200), followed by the South East (10,400). The fewest were in Northern Ireland (300), Wales (500) and the North East (500).
