HC Deb 11 March 1982 vol 19 cc492-3W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the growing practice of prominent film and entertainment employees of British origin voluntarily selecting emigration to tax exile, but returning at frequent intervals to the United Kingdom for various periods of time and taking employment at large fees and expenses on a tax-free basis, he will in his forthcoming Budget take steps to ensure that such people or their employers must deduct tax from these people on a pay-as-you-earn system or some other form of tax method of payment.

Mr. Ridley

Such earnings of a non-resident entertainer from employment with a United Kingdom employer are already subject to pay-as-you-earn.
