The majority shareholder of the Vilniaus Prekyba Group, one of Lithuania's biggest business groups, paid his taxes for 2015 both in Lithuania and in the UK because it was in July 2015 that he reported his departure to the authorities.

Under Lithuanian laws, Numavičius was considered a Lithuanian taxpayer during the full year 2015. As his family's only home has been in London since July 2015 and he has permanently lived there, he has also been considered a UK taxpayer since then.

The UK tax year starts on April 6 and ends on April 5 the following year. Lithuania's tax year is a calendar year.

Vaidotas Cučėnas, head of communications at Talka LT, Numavičius' family office, told BNS that the VP Group shareholder, who is thought to be Lithuania's richest person with an estimated wealth of 1.3 billion euros, did not plan to return to Lithuania, at least not in 2017.
