Non Resident Capital Gains Tax

Non-Resident Capital Gains Tax

Non-Resident Capital Gains Tax (CGT) rules have changed dramatically over the past few years and this can cause immeasurable annoyance. Let Wisteria help you stay up to date and offer advice to get your tax position correct.

Our understanding

Non-resident capital gains tax can be a tricky area. At Wisteria, we’re on-hand to help you navigate any changes in the law and help you plan for the future.

Prior to April 2015, non-residents of the UK would pay no CGT upon the disposal of UK based assets. This changed when HM Revenue and Customs brought UK residential property into the scope of UK CGT. Therefore, many individuals who previously had no tax exposure here when disposing of assets are now caught within UK tax. Not only this, but the rates and reporting requirements have changed with residential properties still being assessed to tax of up to 28%.

Ultimately, it is important to choose the correct tax advisers to ensure you remain compliant with your UK tax reporting requirements and are equipped to plan for the future.  It is also essential that you stay on top of your declarations and pay the correct amount of tax.
