In its 2015 Finance Bill, the U.K. enacted a new 25% diverted profits tax.
The U.K. recently enacted its new 25% diverted profits tax that will affect non-U.K. resident groups that make sales of more than Â£10 million to U.K. customers and companies that achieve an effective tax rate benefit through payments to group companies. The diverted profits tax is separate from corporation tax and is aimed at multinationals entering into "contrived arrangements" to divert profits from the U.K.
The U.K.'s 2015 Finance Bill, which just recently passed into law, also extends the capital gains tax regime to non-U.K. residents disposing of U.K. residential property. There are also provisions relating to the tax treatment of oil and gas, investment management fees, inheritance taxation, and research and development (R&D) tax relief.
