Errm, how does this work then?
So why do overseas players now dominate? As the supposedly economically competent Gordon Brown would understand, it\’s because they enjoy a huge and unfair competitive advantage over British players. Tax rules allow foreign players to claim \’non-domicile\’ status and, with the help of clever lawyers, pay 40 per cent less tax than their British rivals on much of their income.
Non-doms only pay less tax than doms on that portion of their income which is earned abroad. Playing in the Premiership is prety clearly working in the UK. So in thei competition with English players playing in the Premiership the non-dom foreign players don\’t actually have a tax advantage, do they?
