Residence and Domicile

Many clients become confused about the difference between domicile and residence. A client's tax burden will depend on his residence, ordinary residence and domicile. Each of these may be determined differently by various jurisdictions. But a simple guide would be that residence is where a client is living, ordinary residence is the same but extended over several tax years, and domicile is "the country where you have your permanent home", according to the UK Inland Revenue's website. These pages help make this clear.
