Re: Expats should pay tax

Unless they kept residency in the UK when they where living abroad, they will not get any NHS when they come back......


Firstly, 'residency' relates to where you live, if you're living abroad you are by definition not resident in the UK. You may be confusing it with domicile.

Secondly, access to NHS treatment is based purely in being resident. Anyone with a right of residence in the UK (which includes all EU citizens) has access to the NHS. It has nothing to do with domicile.
