Miles Dean comments on the impacts of Labour’s tax plans for non-doms in The Guardian and Tax Journal.

Partner and Head of International Tax, Miles Dean, warns that Labour’s tax plans for non-doms are making the UK unsafe as a tax environment, in The Guardian and Tax Journal. 

Miles’ comments were published in The Guardian, and syndicated in Yahoo! News, 13 April 2024, and Tax Journal, 17 April 2024.

Miles explained that his advice to clients was simple: “If you can leave within six months, make plans to leave now. The UK is no longer safe as a tax environment.”

He further noted that some are not prepared to wait that long, commenting: “I spoke to two clients yesterday: one elder chap who is moving to Dubai, and another 40-year-old entrepreneur who sold a business a few years back and who is moving next month to Spain under the Beckham’s law regime.”

“If you look around the world there are so many places designed to attractive wealthy people and with simple schemes. These people are highly mobile, many of them already have a second home somewhere – why would they stay in the UK?”
