(i) two categories of UK resident but non-UK domiciliaries will be deemed to be UK domiciled for all UK tax purposes; and
(ii) trusts or individuals owning UK residential property through an offshore company, partnership or other opaque vehicle, will be subject to UK inheritance tax (IHT) on the value of such UK property.
