STATEMENT ABOUT TIE DOUBLE TAXATION ARRANGEMENTS
BETWEEN ST. VINCENT AND THE UNITED KINGDOM
AS THEY AFFECT GOVERNMENT OFFICERS.
This statement gives a general outline of the arrangements between St.
Vincent and the United Kingdom whereby the incidence of double taxation
arising in the case of Government Officers becoming liable to both St. Vincent
and United Kingdom income tax in respect of the same income is mitigated.
2. Under United Kingdom law liability to United Kingdom tax in respect
of income from sources outside the United Kingdom arises when an official
becomes "resident" in the United Kingdom, e.g., (a) by being present
in the United Kingdom for a continuous period of six month or for periods
aggregating 183 days during the United Kingdom tax year (the year runs from
6th April to 5th April) or (b) when all his duties are not performed outside
the United Kingdom and he maintains a place of abode in the United Kingdom
available for his use and is present in the'.United Kingdom during an Income
Tax year.
3. Under the arrangements whilst liability to United Kingdom tax in
respect of income from sources outside the United Kingdom other than official
remuneration or pension will continue to arise as described in paragraph 2, an
official or pensioner will only become liable to United Kingdom tax upon his
Overseas Government official remuneration or pension paid for services ren-
dered to the Overseas Government in the discharge of Governmental functions
if he becomes "ordinarily resident" as well as "resident" in the United King-
dom. Furthermore, an official rendering services in the discharge of *Governmen-
tal functions who becomes "ordinarily resident" in the United Kingdom will
not be charged to United Kingdom tax on remuneration paid to him for those
services if he is "ordinarily resident" in the United Kingdom solely for the
purpose of rendering the services. It should be noted, however, that an official
seconded to the Colonial Office in the United Kingdom is not considered by the
United Kingdom Revenue authorities to be in the United Kingdom solely for
1he purpose of rendering services to the Overseas Government.
*Governmental functions in this connection do not include services rendered in con-
nection with a trade or business carried on by the Government for purposes of profit.

302 SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 18 OCTOBER, 1960.-(No. 48.)


The presence in the United Kingdom of the wife of the official or pen-
sioner has no bearing on his United Kingdom tax liability in respect of his
Overseas GJovernment remuneration or pension.
The fact that a serving officer maintains a place of abode in the United
Kingdom will not affect the question of liability on his official remuneration
if he is leld to be not ordinarily resident'' in the United Kingdom or if he
is "ordinarily resident" in the United Kingdom solely for the purpose of
rendering services o1 the Overseas Government.
Furthermore, in the case of an official all of whose duties are performed
outside the United Kingdom, the question whether he is resident in the Uniied
Kingdom is decided, for the year 1956/57 and onwards, without regard to any
place of abode maintained in the United Kingdom for his use, and this applies
to his official remuneration and any other income arising outside the United
Kingdom.
4. An individual is regarded as becoming "ordinarily resident' in the
United Kingdom:
(a) if lie is in the United Kingdom with the intention of taking up
permanent residence there, or
(b) if he visits the United Kingdom year after year and his visits are
for a substantial period or periods of time, annual visits averaging
as mnuh as three months per annum over a period of four years
will normally raise the presumption that he has become "ordinarily
resident" in the United Kingdom. Where, however, his arrange-
ments indicate from the start that regular visits for substantial
periods are to be made to the United Kingdom, he will be regarded
as "ordinarily resident" in the United Kingdom in and from the
first year of visit.
( c if, after his retirement, he maintains a place of abode in the United
Kingdom and visits the United Kingdom annually, for however short
a period.
If an individual who has been "ordinarily resident" in the United Kingdom
leaves the United Kingdom to take up residence elsewhere certain conditions
have to be fulfilled before he can be regarded as having ceased to be "ordinarily
resident" in the United Kingdom.
5. For the purpose of the "ordinary residence" test described in para-
graph 4. aniy period spent in the United Kingdom on a full time education or
training course will be left out of account in computing the average annual
period of visits to the United Kingdom.
If an official becomes "ordinarily resident" in the United Kingdom lie
will not le charged to tax on his official remuneration if his ordinary residence
status arises through the inclusion of a visit or visits during which he was in
the United Kingdom solely for the purpose of rendering services to the Over-
seas Goverinment. The ordinary rule, which takes account of "duty" visits
as well as visits for other purposes (other than educational or training course
visits) will, however, apply in the charging to tax of income other than remun-
Pration.
6. The United Kingdom tax liability of an Overseas official (including an
official seconded to the Colonial Office in the United Kingdom) who is resident
in the United Kingdom for United Kingdom tax purposes and who does not
qualify for exemption from United Kingdom tax on his official pay under the
arrangements described in paragraph 3 above, extends to the full amount of his
overseass Government emoluments payable in the United Kingdom during the
year of charge and also to any part of his Overseas Government emoluments
jf that or any earlier year in which lie has been resident in the United King-
floim which lie receives in the United Kingdom during the year of charge, and
if his Overseas Government emoluments for that year paid in advance which
ie has received in the United Kingdom in any earlier year.
7. Overseas officials and pensioners who go to the United Kingdom with
tle intletion of taking up permanent residence there are treated as becoming
)rdinarily resident in the United Kingdom from the date of their arrival:
(a) If they arrive before the date of their retirement their liability in
respect of pay will be by reference to amounts received in the United
Kingdom up to 5th April following the date of retirement, subject to
the overriding limitation that the sum charged to tax will not exceed
the emoluments arising from the date of arrival to the date of











SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 18 OCTOBER, 1960.-(No. 48.) 30


(b' If ihey do not arrive until after the date of retirement there is
no liability in respect of pay.
Liability in respect of pension will be limited to the amount arising
Ra't-' arrival, in so far as that pension is chargeable to Overseas Government
funds, but will extend to the whole of that part of any pension which is charge-
able to United Kingdom funds.
Full Income Tax allowances will be granted for the year of arrival not-
withst;inding that the Overseas official may be in the United Kingdom for part
o;ily of that year.
8. Where Overseas Government pay or pension which is subject to Over-
seas Government lax becomes also chargeable to United Kingdom tax, the
IUnit(ld Kingdom tax liability will be reduced by a credit in respect of the
(ve! seas Government tax on the part of the income which is doubly taxed.
9. The above statement gives an outline of the general position in normal
circumstances, but any official or pensioner who desires a ruling of the Board
of Inland Revenue as to his "residence" or "ordinary residence" status, or
the extent of his liability to United Kingdom tax should submit the full facts
of his case by letter addressed to the Secretary, Board of Inland Revenue,
Somerset House, London, W.C. 2.

10 1l January, 1950.
