Customer Question

Regarding interpretation of emigration rule.
Currently I live in Europe away from UK, however I keep traveling back to UK to look after rented property which I own.
Can you please specify in accordance with emigration rule, what criteria I have to observe to be treated as emigrant for the purpose of CGT? I would like to know how many days maximum I can be in UK, what have to be a minimum gap between the visits before days are counted again, whether total days are counted in tax year -April to April or January to December, what if I am only coming to UK becouse am in transit to another country? I have read immigration rule, but becouse I am dislexic I am not sure about correct understanding and interpretation of that rule.

Regards

Hello, I'm Keith and happy to help you with your question.

Providing you do not spend more than 90 days each tax year (6 April to 5 April) you should avoid UK taxation. In any event any UK taxation can be offset as a tax credit against the EU country where you stay under the Double Taxation Treaties. Time in transit does not count providing you remain airside at the transit airport.

I do hope I have been able to help, but I think that you will have no worries on the UK taxation score.

The immigration rule states series of conditions which I would like to understand, hence my question. If you not happy to write detail answer than just let me know and I ask this question again. Your anwer type do not worry realy concerns me. I have read emigration rule and it sets certain condition. It does not just say: Providing you do not spend more than 90 days each tax year (6 April to 5 April) you should avoid UK taxation. Question was also set in CGT background.


Actually I am going to ask this question again becouse I do not belive you are going to provide any meaningfull answer.

I gave you the HMRC rule for visiting the UK and avoiding being classed as resident.

Have a look at HMRC guidance 'Tax on UK income or capital gains for non UK residents' 4th main heading covers CGT.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

In my question I was refering to Statutory Residency Test RDR3, which is the key element establishing, wheather someone is resident or not for the purpose of CGT. Your 90 days is ancient approach - this could be very costly. I suggest you stop misleading customer.


 


All the best.

Your post is misleading. The Statutory Residence Teas will tell you if you are classed as resident for tax purposes. However, for a non Brit travelling in and out at intervals the 90 day rule applies.
