Making selling or leasing a London home straightforward for non-domiciles

If you live abroad and want to sell your London property, you’ll need an accurate market valuation. However, you also need to pay tax on the gains from the sale, and you may require a rental income assessment if you intend to lease your home. Fortunately, our RICS registered valuers can value your property accurately, assess your tax obligations and prevent potentially costly disputes.

Why do I need a non-domicile tax valuation?

Various taxation laws apply to non-domiciles who sell or lease a home in London or anywhere else in the UK. Depending on your situation, you might be exempt from certain charges, and you may even be required to pay taxes on the gains from your property’s sale to your country of residence. A non-domicile tax valuation tells you what applies to you, how much you need to pay and how to sell or dispose of your London home legally.

Do non-domiciles need to pay capital gains tax on their London properties?

Historically, non-domiciles from the UK weren’t subject to taxation laws when selling or leasing a London property, but the rules changed following the announcement of the April 2015 budget. Now, you may need to pay tax on any income that goes through the UK, such as if you transfer foreign income to a UK bank account. Regarding capital gains tax, you’ll likely need to pay tax depending on how much profit you make, your total taxable income and your remittance basis.
The UK’s taxation laws are notoriously complex, but our RICS registered valuers can provide a robust report for your legal advisors or solicitors so that you can make informed and beneficial financial decisions.
