I was born in the UK and now live in Italy with my husband I don't work here and have residential status since Jan 2017 my then accountant said I was domiciled in the UK as I have a business there and frequently go back and forth I owned a house there which I sold in Dec 2017 and bought another in Oct 2018 which i have just finished renovating in that time I have used and stayed at my dads house in Scotland I want to understand if it is correct that I say Iam UK domicile and pay tax there but resident in Italy ?

Thank you for your question.

You are UK domicile by birth. You may be living in Italy. You would pay tax in the UK on income arising in the UK whether you are UK domiclie or not.

You would pay tax to Italian authorities being resident in Italy for tax purposes. If you suffer any tax in the UK on income arising here then you can claim foreign tax credit relief on it against tax paid on same income in Italy.

Useful information on difference between domicile and residence can be found here

How do I pay tax to the Italian government? And where do I claim tax credit? Here or UK?

Thank you for your reply.

You would need to register with tax authorities in Italy if you are liable to pay tax in Italy.

You would claim foreign tax credit in Italy if an income source is taxed twice once in the UK and then in Italy.

This would only apply if you have suffered tax in the UK on income arising in the UK.

I’m still not understanding if I have no income in Italy why I need to pay tax here ?

Thank you for your reply.

Please advise if you still have income arising in the UK. If the answer is yes, you may have to declare that income to Italian tax authorities if you are deemed resident in Italy for tax purposes.

If the income (from all sources) exceeds your personal allowance available to tax payers in Italy then there may be a situation where you have to pay taxes in Italy.

I hope this is helpful.

all of my income is from the UK around 20k which is 17k from property rental income and 3 from an online store i own.

Thank you for your reply.

Income from property rental and online store would be subjected to UK taxation.

You need to check with Italian tax authorities if you have to register for tax in Italy as a resident there albeit you are a UK National. I am not a tax expert on Italian tax regulations.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
