Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be abl to help you with your question.
When you left the UK for Germany did you send a FormP85 to your tax office?
I would strongly advise sending your tax office a P85 telling that Department of your original departure date. On receipt HMRC will classify you as non resident. Once so classified you can spend up to 90 days in the UK in any one tax year without breaching your status. Fortunately, there i no time limit on its submission, it is available on the web and can be filed on line. Sale of your sole or main domestic residence would not normally attract Capital Gains Tax (CGT) as Provate Residence Relief (PRR) ia allowed at 100%.
It is always a good idea to put your residence house in order and the P85 does just that.
The P85 tells HMRC that you have left the UK.
Thank you for your support.
