tax

Before 5 April 2015 a non-resident landlord selling UK residential property was exempt from paying Capital Gain Tax* (CGT). However following the recent tax changes, overseas residents with homes in the UK have been urged to revalue their property to avoid overpaying tax if they come to sell it. From April 2015 an oversees landlord selling UK residential property must pay CGT but only on the gain you’ve made since 5 April. (ft.com)

*Capital Gains Tax is a tax on the profit when you sell (or ‘dispose of’) something (an       ‘asset’) that’s increased in value. It’s the gain you make that’s taxed, not the amount of money you receive. Example: You bought a painting for £5,000 and sold it later for £25,000. This means you made a gain of £20,000 (£25,000 minus £5,000). (source)
