Guess who's setting the agenda once again?
The Guardian explains “Non-doms pay UK income tax and capital gains tax on their UK sources of income and gains, and whatever income generated overseas they choose to remit to the UK. By contrast, UK domiciles have to pay tax on all of their income and gains, wherever in the world they are made – Britain or overseas”. The way in which non-dom status is acquired is also a strange and arcane thing.
Well, look who's here, eh?
Tories, the Mail has reported, are opposed to the move, with Michael “Oiky” Gove warning “the policy would result in the Treasury losing revenue” (note that he does not defend the principle behind non-dom status). So why should the Mail be so opposed? After all, the Vagina Monologue, as far as is known, pays all his taxes in the UK.
