The corporate residence test is examined by the FTT in the Development Securities case, a useful reminder that simply going through the motions of having offshore board meetings is not in itself enough to achieve non-UK residence. The Upper Tribunal rules in McQuillan that zero dividend redeemable shares are ordinary share capital as defined in ITA 2007 s 989.
