It is not unusual for UK nationals who move abroad to keep their financial affairs tax efficient from a UK perspective and ignore the tax consequences in their new country of residence. Admittedly faced with the complexities of a foreign tax regime and the added complication of potentially remaining liable to UK inheritance tax makes it all the more difficult.
Some clients find it easier to pretend they are still UK resident whilst living abroad to avoid dealing with the issue however this could have serious tax consequences further down the line, particularly post FATCA 1st July 2014, when global automatic exchange of information has become the norm.
