Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hi. My name is*****'m looking at your question now and will post my answer or ask for more information here in a short while.
Assuming you are already registered for self-assessment, you will need to register as a non-resident landlord which you can read about here. Assuming you are a UK national, you will be entitled to a personal allowance to offset against your rental profit.
From 6 April 2016, dividends are no longer treated as paid net of a 10% tax credit. Prior to 5 April 2016, non--UK residents were not liable to UK tax on UK dividends beyond the 10% tax credit. Apparently, this will continue to be the case from 6 April 2016 so there should be no change in a non-resident's tax position on dividends. Take a look here for more information.
As your companies are UK registered companies, they will be liable to corporation tax in the UK.
I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
HMRC may seek to tax UK dividends paid to owners of close companies (no more than 5 shareholders of participators) whilst they are non-UK resident if they return to he UK within 5 years of leaving.
See paragraphs 6.17 to 6.19 inclusive in RDR3 here (pages 77 and 78) for the rules on dividends paid by close companies to non-resident shareholders.
I have to go out for a while but will be back this afternoon to answer any follow up questions that you may have.
Hi.I'm just following up to find out if my answer helped or if you have any further questions.
