Finance Bill — New Clause 1 — Non-Domiciled Individuals — Protection of Overseas Trusts — 31 Oct 2017 at 14:45

The majority of MPs voted not to undertake a review of the effects of protections for overseas trusts in relation to new provisions on the tax treatment of non-domiciled individuals.

MPs were considering the Finance Bill[1].

The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled: Deemed domicile: review of protection of overseas trusts and stated:

  • ‘(1) Within fifteen months of the passing of this Act, the Commissioners for Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs shall complete a review about the operation of the provisions for the protection of overseas trusts in relation to deemed domicile.
  • (2) The review shall in particular consider—
  • (a) the effects of those provisions on the Exchequer,
  • (b) the behavioural effects of those provisions, and
  • (c) the effects on the matters specified in paragraphs (a) and (b) if those provisions were repealed.
  • (3) For the purposes of this section, “the provisions for the protection of overseas trusts” means the provisions inserted 18 to 38 and 40 of Schedule 8 to this Act.
  • (4) The Chancellor of the Exchequer shall lay a report of the review under this section before the House of Commons within three months of its completion.’

The rejected new clause was accompanied by the following explanatory note:

  • This new clause requires a review to be undertaken of the effects of the provisions for protecting overseas trusts from the new provisions in relation to deemed domicile.
