Do I pay UK Inheritance Tax on UK assets if I am a non-domicile?

Undeniably, as a British expatriate living in Spain, understanding the tax implications on your UK assets is essential. Particularly relevant is the UK Inheritance Tax (IHT) which, even as a non-domicile, impacts your UK-situated assets.

Possessing assets like UK property, belongings physically located in the UK at the time of death, or even UK bank accounts and other financial investments, all fall within the scope of UK IHT. An important note for expats living in Spain is that shares held in a UK company are also typically regarded as UK assets for IHT purposes.

The taxing mechanism involves levying a rate typically at 40% on the asset value surpassing the £325,000 personal allowance. This implies a significant chunk of your estate could potentially be lost to tax.

Navigating these complex waters of international tax law is not straightforward, and the landscape is continuously evolving. Therefore, it is paramount to receive personalised and up-to-date advice.
