OK I'll wait.
Could you please clarify?Given that I own a British passport and I live in Greece (EUA) am I entitled to the UK personal allowance? Yes?Since my only income in the UK is the £7,500 from the proposed rent, which is less than the £11,000 I take it that I don't have to pay any tax at all. Yes?Do I have to apply somewhere to have my rents paid without deduction of tax, or shouldn't I bother? If yes how? Is there a form ?(number?)Since my income is less than 11K do I have to complete self-assessment tax returns at all? (I'd rather not)
Yes, as explained in my answer.Yes, as explained in my answer.If you read the notes on the non-resident landlord scheme which I gave you a link to, they tell you what you need to do. The form you need is NRL1 here. There is a link to this form in the NRL notes which I linked you to in my previous post.You have to complete tax returns if the tax office issue them to you or you think you may have a tax liability.
I have not been asked to complete tax returns and I can't see why I should think I may have a tax liability. I have not received any income at all in the UK for over 3 years now. But, since I'm now purchasing a property to rent out I may have income in the future.(the £7,500 i mentioned). So would you agree with me that there's no reason to complete a tax returns form?As far as the NRL1 form, I think there's a problem with the system. I try to download the PDF and have installed all the latest acrobat software but I can't download the form, nor see it.
