Rishi Sunak’s wife, Akshata Murty, has said she will now pay UK taxes on all her worldwide income.
In a statement, Ms Murty said she did not want her non-dom status to be a “distraction” for her husband.
“For this reason, I will no longer be claiming the remittance basis for tax,” she said.
“This means I will now pay UK tax on an arising basis on all my worldwide income, including dividends and capital gains, wherever in the world that income arises.
“I do this because I want to, not because the rules require me to.
“These new arrangements will begin immediately and will also be applied to the tax year just finished.”
