Inheritance Tax on assets outside of UK: India domicile of origin

Inheritance Tax on assets outside of UK: India domicile of origin

We have a client with Indian DOO, now deemed domicile in UK. He no longer has Indian citizenship only British.

Do the Indian rules still apply as he no longer has Indian citizenship?

What will be needed to put in place for assets located in India and outside of the UK to avoid UK IHT?

Is there any case law that one can review on this subject?

Many thanks for your thoughts and comments.

The Indian Assets can be placed in Trust as the Indian ‘authorities’ do recognise trusts in a not too dissimilar manner to the UK. My company makes use of an Isle of Man Trust Company.
