Capital Gain arising while non-resident

Postby Naz » Thu Oct 05, 2017 12:32 pm

I have been non-resident for many years and in this period acquired couple of BTL properties. If these are sold after becoming tax resident, would the gain accrued during the period of non-residency be exempted from CGT (except since April 2015) or all the gain be taxed without regard to the period of non-residency?
Appreciate your response.

All of the gain is taxable when you become UK resident for tax purposes.
So in the tax year that you return - ensure the properties are sold before you become UK resident.

And if you haven't, familiarise yourself with the new(ish) non-resident capital gains requirements, in case you sell any of them whilst non-resident.

Thank you for the above responses. Could a tax vehicle such as a trust or limited company help in my situation to crystallize gain before my return?
