Hello Tony I am a British National and I pay a small tax on my earning around 5%. No my employer is Chinese and based in China I have been living and working in Asia for nearly five years and also taXXXXX XXXXX holidays. After my current contract runs out in July 2014 I will go on holiday for three months
thank Tony my expenses for the flat this year will be around 5000 inlcuding an allowance for furniture
if I claim non residency will this effect my personal allowance and will I pay tax on the full income from my flat? At present I can deduct the PA from the rent. I did not fill in a P85 and it is my employer who deals with my tax here in China
You will still be entltled to a personal allowance as a non-UK resident individual. Many UK nationals who live abroad offset their personal allowance against UK rental income.
You may not be aware of the non-resident landlord scheme. Read about it here.
thank for that Tony I did not know about this One last question can I still claim for the expenses on my flat if I am none resident ?
