Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

View Post
Well I can't vote, yet have a large future UK tax liability.
Reasonably people should be able to vote after 5 years legal residence, If you want to add a rider that they need to have paid tax, I don't have an issue with that.
There does probably have to be a limit to when you can still vote, after x years of absence from the country.

Ideally, people would be honest and self-censoring on this issue - if you're unlikely to return (as is my current plan) - then don't vote. I don't really feel I have too much of a stake in saying the direction the country should go in, if I am no longer a part of it.

As we've discussed elsewhere - if you really want to, you can avoid that UK tax liability - if you become (if you haven't already) domiciled in Malta and divest yourself of all your UK assets, then you aren't going to be owing too much in the future - in fact you won't owe anything, just any recipients domiciled in the UK will!
