New Brazil law on CGT

Postby royoneill » Wed Jun 19, 2024 7:35 pm

I am a UK citizen who moved permanently to Brazil with in 2018.
I bought my family home in the UK in 2004 and it was to be unaffected by Brazil tax when I sold it in the future.
On 31/12/2023 a new tax law came into effect in Brazil removing the exemption for pre owned assets and they now want 15% CGT when I sell, on the whole profit not just the profit from 2015 value like the UK will want.
I am looking for some advice on how to legally ensure I don't pay CGT in Brazil.
Or am I stuck waiting for the DTA to come into force.

The DTA ain't gonna protect you, it'll still be taxable in Brazil.

The new DTA will give the UK first right to tax but that will just be a credit against the Brazilian tax liability. If the Brazilian tax is more, you will have to pay them the balance.

We are mainly UK tax specialists so you would need to get advice from a Brazilian tax adviser for potential mitigation
