    Do non-UK tax residents have to pay capital gain tax over sold properties?

    Hello,
    I am selling my UK property which was my sole property and my sole UK residence until I moved to another EU country in 2008. The UK property was let out in all these years until the sale. Will I need to pay any tax in the UK on the property sale? Thanks in advance.

    Yes, but for non-residents, only the capital gain from 6 April 2015 is counted for capital gains tax.

    So if you have owned the property for 15 years and expect a capital gain of say £300K , then only the gain in one year = £20K is taxable .

    Also you have a capital gains personal allowance of £11K which can be deducted from 20K , and so the amount £9K is liable for tax .

      Hopefully the OP is registered with HMRC as a non UK resident landlord already and been paying income tax, which will simplify things.
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      • Capital Gains Tax dilemma
        by Ollyn
        Hello

        I am considering whether to sell my house which has been let for some time and need to see how I can best deal with CGT.

        I lived in the property from 1984 until 2006.

        From 2006 it has been occupied by tenants, now vacant and being renovated.

        You should seek advice from an accountant, or a property tax for tailored advice to your specific circumstances, you may be entitled to some relief if the property at any time was your own principal residence.

        You declare (online) and pay CGT within 60 days of sale. Depending on the numbers I would expect you to pay CGT. What records do you have of applicable costs, etc?

        What you pay will depend on what CGT rules when you sell - v unlikely to be better than today, possibly worse. Covid,...

        The property allowance is a tax exemption of up to £1,000 a year for individuals with income from land or property.

        If you own a property jointly with others, you’re each eligible for the £1,000 allowance against your share of the gross rental income.

        If your annual gross...

        Can anyone help please, if a rental property is owned by two people 50 50. Would each owner be allowed to claim tax relief of £1000 each, or will the allowance of £1000 be split 50 50.
        Thanks

        It's £1,000 each.

        Most landlords don't use this though, because it's rare for income from a rental property to be low enough to qualify,

        Rent is income. All income needs to be declared, regardless of the mortgage you have

        The clue is in the name. INCOME tax. Make sure you keep all relevant records, possibly say 30 years , for CGT which on current rules you will probably pay when eventually sold. But yes, self assessment income tax to be comply and paid, online. Do you have registration for government gateway?
