Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Does a person have to be domiciled in the United Kingdom for personal taxation or just hold a United Kingdom passport to be nominated as BBC Sports Personality of the Year?

Dear FOI Enquiries,

thank you for your response.

However, the rules do not state whether a person is ineligible if they are not domiciled in the UK or fail to pay taxes, such as VAT on a private jet.

Can you clarify this aspect or advise why paying taxes is not a a core element of being nominated?

In view of this

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Tully
