Rishi Sunak was fighting to save his political career last night, following new exposures to his family’s financial problems, including a surprising claim that he broke US immigration rules.
It came because a friend of the prime minister said last week that Mr Snack considered leaving the cabinet to save him from scrutinizing his family more – and may still do so if pressure continues. ..
Yesterday, Mr. Snack’s political opponent was White House To investigate why the Prime Minister had a US green card until October last year.
Rishi Sunak’s political opponents yesterday asked the White House to investigate why the Prime Minister had a US green card until October last year.
This card will guide the owner on the path to US citizenship if he makes the United States a permanent residence and declares his intention to pay taxes there.
Sunak and his wife Akshata Murty own and regularly visit a £ 5 million apartment in Santa Monica, California.
Last night, the Treasury said Mr Snack had filed an annual tax return with the United States until he handed over the card.
A spokesman said he was fully taxed on his £ 151,000 cabinet salary in both countries.
But last night’s tax experts said more sophisticated offset arrangements are likely to be implemented.
This week, the Prime Minister noticed that he was at the center of a major line around his household.
The Labor Party and the Liberal Democratic Party emphasized the rules set by the US Citizenship and Immigration Department. This means that green card holders “must not be employed by a foreign government,” “vote for foreign elections,” or “should not have close relatives residing outside the United States.” Of the state.
It was after anger at Marty’s “non-dome” tax status, which potentially prevented her from paying tens of millions of pounds of tax.
On Friday, she announced that she would begin paying UK taxes as her arrangement was “incompatible” with her husband’s job as prime minister.
Boris Johnson said Marty’s after workers accused Snack of lacking transparency in family financial arrangements while raising taxes on millions of people in the midst of a deepening cost of living. He admitted that he was not informed about the non-dome condition.
Snack’s friend says he considered leaving the line last week. However, Cabinet colleague Jacob Rees-Mogg defended:
One friend said:
Akshata Murthy, whose father is one of India’s wealthiest men, remains non-dominated despite living with Rishi Sunak and his children at 11 Downing Street. Faced scrutiny after it became clear.They are drawn together last month
In the end, they decided to make a U-turn, but that’s just around the corner, and if this continues, he may still decide that it’s not worth the stress.
Liberal Democratic Party diplomatic spokesman Layla Moran wrote to U.S. officials, despite Mr. Snack’s “holding an elected position in the United Kingdom and serving as Minister of Finance since February 2020. I asked him to investigate why he held the card.
She added: “This seems to violate US State Department rules.”
In further development, Sunday’s email urged HMRC to investigate whether Ms. Marty broke her non-dome status conditions by giving her British company £ 4.3m on an interest-free loan. You can make it clear.
Experts said her personal loan to her venture capital firm, Catamaran Ventures UK, was classified as a “gray zone” in the rules.
It was alleged that the loan could “avoid” her non-dome status remittance criteria if it turned out to give “monetary or non-monetary benefits” such as influence.
Individuals can offer a tax-free loan to a UK company, even if the money comes from foreign revenues that are not subject to UK taxes.
This is an extraordinary web of homes and businesses with links to Rishi Sunak and his wife Axita, the heir to a billion dollar property.

A Treasury spokesman said he had declared a green card arrangement to the Cabinet Office in 2018 when Mr Snack became minister.
He gave up in October last year after seeking guidance prior to his first trip to the United States in government position.
That means he was paying taxes to the U.S. government at the same time he was negotiating with Washington about a minimum international tax rate for U.S.-based Internet giants, including Google and Facebook. increase.
Mr Snack also faces claims that he is listed as a beneficiary of tax havens in the UK’s Virgin and Cayman Islands while setting taxes as Prime Minister in the UK.
According to finance sources, Mr Snack, his wife, and her wealthy family were unaware of the trust to nominate him as a beneficiary.
Marty declined to answer questions about loans. A spokesman for her said she “followed the text of the law.”
It happened because the mover was seen outside the address of the Prime Minister’s Downing Street. Because Sunaks temporarily moved to a home in western London for his family’s reasons.
Marty is the daughter of Billionaire NR Narayana Mercy. She is Rishi Sunak. At her wedding reception in 2009, she is taking pictures in Bangalore with her father and mother Suda Muti.
