A friend of mine has just returned from the British Embassy here in Doha, where she was told by some financial consultant or accountant chap that there are plans afoot to change the tax laws for expats. The new law or laws will mean that it will be impossible to claim to be "non-resident for tax purposes" if you still have a property in the UK. She also said that the new legislation would mean that you could only visit the UK for TEN days each year, rather than the current ninety, while retaining your "non-resident" status. Is this all correct? Has anyone else heard something similar? Could lots of expat teachers find themselves with huge bills for Income Tax on their foreign earnings when they return to the UK?
