  • Dual citizenship

    Hello, just a practical information. I have dual passport/citizenship, Italian and British. I live in the UK, so who am I legally speaking, a British national living at home in the UK or an Italian living abroad?

    Morning,

    Actually, you are both! As far as the Italian authorities are concerned, you are an Italian living abroad, I'm assuming you are registered with AIRE to be able to renew your passport, etc. As you haven't lost your Italian citizenship, having acquired the British one didn't change anything in this respect. As far as the British authorities are concerned, you are a British citizen living at home, like many others who also hold another citizenship. Luckily, both the UK and Italy allow dual citizenship, or even more than two. We have members who have both as well as a third, such as US, Brazil, etc.

      Yes sure I'm registered with AIRE. So practically none of the British laws are applying to me when I'm in Italy and none of the Italian laws are applying to me when I'm in the UK, inheritance laws included, is it correct?

        I’m afraid we can’t really advice on inheritance law, this is a highly specialised subject and you will need advice from a qualified estate planner. Unqualified advice in an area like that could be very co$tly for you. In general, inheritance tax is based on the law of the country where the estate or property is located, regardless of nationality.

            Hi Carla,

            As the Sa has already mentioned, the inheritance tax is in relation to two factors:
            - location of the property;
            - tax residence.
            ​​​​​​I am assuming you are an UK tax resident, as you spend more than 183 days a year there. So, I believe you should not be subject to double taxation but I am not sure.
            Anyways, take a look on here Inheritance Tax: Double Taxation Relief - GOV.UK ..

            I am not affiliated to any firm and I am doing this independently on my own, no one is paying me for this.
            I am not one of the forum volunteers.
            I hope to start working as paralegal soon.
            If I helped you, a thumbs-up is always appreciated.
