Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
I am not british citizen and I live in Hong Kong. I couldn't find anywhere in the website to state that I can actually claim the personal allowance, just wonder whether can claim the tax relief in Double taxation That is why worried me. Do I need to go back to talk to HMRC as I actually want to sell the flat now cos I heard about the CGT start in 2015.
Hong Kong with British National (overseas) passport
Thanks for your advice. I did ring up HMRC earlier, non uk resident who have a BNO passport is entitled to get the UK personal allowance. It's now make sense whatever the broker said.
Hope you don't mind I ask the final question. I have the life insurance for my mortgage endowment policy 20 years ago and will be matured next year, will I need to pay tax for this as my mortgage has already settled.
