Selling house and going abroad

Postby Wanderer2019 » Fri Dec 14, 2018 9:44 am

If we sell our primary residence in early 2019 and go abroad travelling for 3 or 4 years, will we be liable for CGT?

Not on the house sale anyway.

If you are away for less than 5 full tax years, gains you make while away can be taxed when you return
