Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello Ben, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
When you left the UK in 2017 did you send a Form P85 to your tax office?
Sounds correct! You will be liable for UK taxation on your net rental income. If this is below your personal allowance, currently 11850, there will be no tax due. In any event of Brazil is taxing you on this income then, under the Double Taxation Treaty between the UK and Brazil, which precludes the same income stream being taxed in both jurisdictions, Any tax paid in one country is allowed as a tax credit against tax [aid in the other. Rentals are invariably taxed in country of origin.
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
On the contrary, HMRC says there is, but I agree that it is limited to shipping and transport costs.
As you are non resident in the UK then you will only be taxed on the net rental income less your personal allowance. If this is also taxable in Brazil then there is a danger of double taxation which, on the face of it, cannot be avoided.
You are non resident. You are being paid for work undertaken locally in Brazil. Therefor the current tax treatment is correct.
Correct, that's why the P85 generated an effecitvely'No tax' coding.
