Where is the person's actual domicile? There is no provision I know of that deems domicile outside the UK if actual domicile is within it. Anyway, being domiciled outside the UK does not exempt you from CGT. If that's what you meant, go on a course to retrain and in the meantime stop advising nondoms.

Your first question has been discussed ad nauseam on this site. IIRC, opinion is divided (this is Any Answers!). My view (one I base on legislation, rather than discussion in here) is that initial base cost would be MV on death, converted to Sterling at the rate then applicable.
