A Non-domiciled person is someone who is living in the UK but their permanent home isn’t in the UK. These people can benefit from certain tax advantages.

More detail:

A Non-domiciled person is an individual who is living in the United Kingdom but their permanent home is elsewhere.

If a Non-domiciled person earns less than £2000 in foreign income and gains, and does not transfer this into the UK, they are not required to do anything with UK tax.

However, if they make more than £2000, the Non-domiciled person is required to report the earning to HMRC via a Self Assessment. Then, they have a choice. They can either pay UK tax on this income or, they can claim the Remittance Basis where they only have to pay tax on the money brought into the country. This is tax advantageous but there are other negatives such as losing tax-free allowances for Income Tax and Capital Gains tax, and having to pay a large annual charge to maintain your Non-domiciled status.
