For the first time in the history of UK direct taxation, the Finance Act 2013 introduced, in s.218 and Schedule 45, a comprehensive statutory test of residence.

McKie on Statutory Residence is a comprehensive examination of the new test. The Authors explain its multiple complexities of construction and their practical implications. In doing so they are careful to distinguish the law from HMRC's summaries of the law. The Book includes all of the statutory and non-statutory materials which are relevant to the SRT and the Authors comment in detail on HMRC's guidance and consider the extent to which, where it takes a view of the law advantageous to the taxpayer, it may be relied upon. A number of practical checklists and flowcharts are included.

The complexities of the new test can be explained and appreciated only by reference to realistic examples and the Authors include 84 detailed examples teasing out its many anomalies and traps for the unwary.
