The issue in GetHuman-dobdobdo's own words
My question relates to the tax implications of my return date to the UK after ** years overseas when it comes to my own personal property. The facts are as follows:-*** I left UK in **** and have been continually non resident ever since then. We are currently expecting to return to UK next year.*** I bought a flat in London in **** for around **K and am about to put it onto the market probably for around ***K so a substantial capital gain.*** I know until a couple of years ago there was no UK capital gains tax for non residents like me.*** I know that non residents are now liable for some capital gains tax and I assume this would be only pro rata for the portion of ownership time after the change in tax rules a year or two ago.*** I heard that if the sale is made in the same tax year in which I become tax resident again then I could be liable on capital gain for the entire period of ownership even if I was abroad for **% of it.*** So want I want to clarify is if I sell the property this year (ie in tax year ****-****) does it make a different to my tax liability whether I return before or after *st April ****.
