Thanks for your question
Domicile is usually determined by you and your fathers birth place birth place or place of death (if one and the same) where this differ it all depends on factors of where you live and your movements within that country, what ties you have to any one or more countries and your intended last resting place
At this time its far to say you are non domiciled in the UK as you receive no income from this country but its not something you claim its a matter of fact based on your circumstance, as HMRC will never allocate this to your present position, as that could all change.
But as you have no UK income arising AND you have been treated as not resident for the last 9 years and you have no money or assets that sit in the UK then you will not be liable to any tax in the UK.
What is it that concerns you regarding this status recognition?
Thanks for your response
So these dividends originate from the UK? And I assume you declare these to HMRC through self assessment for higher rate tax?
Can we establish this first before we then determine where you should pay tax
Then whether you have domiciled status or not you have NO UK tax liability as you are neither resident in the UK nor have any source of income arising in the UK.
You tax obligation will always be the country in which you permanently reside which is Thailand and if they are not able or be prepared to take into play your tax position due to restrictions placed on the visa, then Hong Kong would be the next country to have rights on your tax as your main income originates from this country.
The UK have no obligations at all - unless for some very bizarre reason Hong Kong also die not have the ability to take you within their tax jurisdiction (but I cannot see any reason whay they could not)
So your domicile within the UK has no bearing its the residency position and where the income arises that determines your tax position.
