“Fawcetts have provided me with excellent financial support and advice during 2 business start ups and continuing growth. I have a dedicated adviser, Nick Jones who plays a key role in the management and strategic direction of my company and is always accessible for routine and impromptu meetings. Through personal experience i have experienced that the size and scale of a business is immaterial to Fawcetts – the commitment is always the same and they really make you feel as though you and your business matters. I have recommended Fawcetts and Nick to my colleagues and will continue to do so. ”

Although living in Bournemouth I chose Fawcetts due to their excellent reputation.

If you have lived abroad for six or months or more in a year, you are classed as a “non-resident landlord”, and the income you receive from renting out your home whilst abroad is taxable in the UK.
This needs to be declared to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), but you do not necessarily need to file a tax return.
Non-resident landlords can choose to be taxed in one of two ways:
- Through self-assessment (SA). SA tax returns must be filed by the 31 January deadline if you do it online, or by 31 October if you choose to do it by paper. If you haven’t registered for SA, you must do so by 5 October.
- At source, deducted by your letting agent or tenant.
If you choose to get your rent in full and pay tax via SA, you’ll need to fill in a form NRL1i, found here. If previous tax returns are outstanding, or if tax is owed, your application may not get approved.
Even if you are a non-resident landlord, your £11,500 personal tax allowance still applies.
You might also need to pay Capital Gains Tax if you make a gain when you sell residential property in the UK.
