Home / News and Insights / Press / What Labour’s tax proposals could mean

At the recent party conference, Labour Party opposition proposed a new, more ‘fair’ tax system as well as highlighting its desire to get rid of the resident non-domiciled regime.

With the prospect of a 2024 general election looming, partner Judith Millar examines what a Labour government could have in store for high-net-worth individuals in an article for Wealth Briefing.

‘There is little doubt about the Labour view of non-doms: that the Conservatives have allowed “the wealthiest to avoid taxes, keeping loopholes open” and their intention – if the non-dom tax status is abolished – is for the extra tax generated to be channelled into the NHS.

In truth, non-doms already make a substantial contribution to the UK economy. 2022 figures from HMRC estimated that there were 78,000 individuals falling into the non-dom categories who added (by way of income tax, CGT and National Insurance contributions) a total of at least £12.4 billion ($15.1 billion) to tax revenues. (1) But this excludes their overseas income and gains, and assets located outside the UK which are also protected against inheritance tax.’
