Corporate Residence is about the UK's approach to determining the residence status of corporations and thus their exposure to UK tax. If companies are not managed and controlled in the correct way they could unintentionally become UK resident and so be rendered subject to UK taxes.
The question of where a company is actually resident has become increasingly significant, with the international nature of so many business transactions today, including e-commerce transactions.
