This one is going to cause some fun

The Budget notes say (page 246) that:

Transfer of Assets Abroad

27. Anti-avoidance legislation designed to prevent individuals from avoiding

income tax by transferring assets abroad will be amended to ensure these

anti-avoidance provisions apply to non domiciled individuals. The

remittance basis will apply to remittance basis users.

This is a massive change. It effectively says that once a non-domiciled person is resident here they can no longer set up non-resident trusts to avoid UK tax.

Very good news!
