Well done Accountancy Age for spotting this!
"Exchequer secretary to the Treasury David Gauke originally told Parliament that a total of 9,600 non-doms would pay an annual remittance charge in 2012-13, which allows them to pay tax only on money remitted to the UK and not on total worldwide income.
This was an increase on the 7,400 non-doms expected to pay the charge in 2011-12, despite chancellor George Osborne announcing an increase in the charge for non-doms who had been resident in the UK for 12 or more of the previous 14 years from £30,000 to £50,000.
However, following an investigation by Accountancy Age, Gauke yesterday told Parliament that the figures for 2012-13 were 6,300 in total, with 2,600 people paying the £30,000 and 3,700 paying the increased £50,000 charge."
