Posted on

Source: HMRC Press Release, 1 December 2017

This consultation relates to the circumstances in which royalties and other types of payment made to connected persons not resident in the UK have a liability to income tax.

The UK government will introduce legislation in Finance Bill 2018-19 that broadens the circumstances in which certain payments made to non-UK residents have a liability to income tax.

These changes will have effect from April 2019. The consultation focuses on the design of that legislation.

The government welcomes comments from those who would be affected by these changes, including companies, advisors and representative bodies.

The consultation runs from 1 December 2017 to 23 February 2018.
