Residence Rules For Individuals

Record keeping under the statutory residence test

Record keeping has always been an essential part of documenting a person’s residence position, and the statutory residence test (SRT) while giving more certainty about your residence position does put in place a more rigid structure which only increases the need to keep proof and more detailed records.
