Tax paid by non-doms tops £9bn

Non-domiciled taxpayers (non-doms) in the UK paid more than £9 billion of income, capital gains tax and national insurance in 2014-15, figures from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) reveal.

There were 121,300 registered non-doms in the UK 2014-15. 85,400 of the registered non-doms were UK residents in 2014-15, meaning that on average they each paid about £105,000 to HMRC.

Non-doms located in London and the South East contributed 86 per cent of all the tax paid by this group of people, the data indicates.
