You need to declare it in the tax year it happened.
You have to use the home for 3 years for it to become your place of residence.
Less than that then you pay capital gains tax pro rata to the time it was
Therefore if it was your primary home for 1 year, you have to pay 2/3rds capital gains tax
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
thanks, I have visited this page many a times but wanted a clarification in layman's term. from what I understand is I should qualify for 11 years and 9 months of PRR is it true. Showing the hmrc web is not what I was expecting from my subscription really.
