To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what his latest estimate is of the number of people in the UK who are eligible to claim non-domicile tax status; and if he will make a statement. (163436)

Information on how many individuals in the UK are eligible to claim non-domicile tax status is not available. However information is available on the numbers of individuals indicating non-domicile status on their self assessment (SA) returns. The last full year's data relates to 2004-05, in which there were 115,000 indicating non-domicile status. HMRC's live systems show the latest figure (as at August 2007) for 2005-06 is 114,000 individuals.
