To complicate things further, there are different rules if the person held assets in a trust or government gilts, or if they were a member of visiting armed forces.

The government seem to recognise that IHT can be a confusing tax and as such, they have an IHT and probate helpline which can be called for guidance.

There are definitions in place for when someone will not count as living abroad.

HMRC will treat people as being domiciled in the UK if they:

  • Have lived in the UK for 15 of the last 20 years
  • Had their permanent home in the UK at any time in the last three years of their life
