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.
Do you own the property that you live in now? If so, are you selling it?
What is the purchase price of the new main residence?
Leave this with me while I draft my answer.
Use the calculator here to work out your stamp duty. I've calculated it at £8,875 for a £227,500 additional property.
As you are not replacing your previous main home, you are liable to the 3% surcharge unfortunately. Take a look here for more information on that.
I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
OK. Is it on the same topic?
No, the fact that you won't have to pay CGT in Australia does not necessarily mean you won't have a CGT liability in the UK. You may or may not have to pay CGT. Take a look at HS283 for information on the main residence and CGT.
