UK Tax Questions? Ask a UK Tax Advisor for answers ASAP
Hi.So long as you remain non-UK resident until at least 6 April 2014 (5 complete tax years starting from 6 April 2009) you will not have to pay CGT in the UK on any gain you make. If you return to the UK to live before 6 April 2014, the gain will be taxable in the year of your return subject to main residence and letting reliefs. As far as your tax return is concerned, you do not need to report the gain but it would be as well to put a note in the white space on the return to notify the tax office that you have sold the property. I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
