Our Self Assessment Tax Return Services are especially well used by Non Resident Landlords as they provide an easy and cost efficient way of ensuring that you keep up to date with your UK tax affairs and just as importantly that you pay the correct amount of tax and not a penny more.

When you leave the UK whether it is temporary or for good, you may still have a tax liability for any income that arises in the UK.

The most common of these are:

  • Property income
  • Savings income
  • UK State Pension Income

We will use our experience in expatriate tax matters to ensure that all possible reliefs are claimed and that you utilise any property losses from previous years and carry forward any losses from current years. these are especially useful as it is possible that the first year of letting will result in extra costs than the subsequent years.

Our Managing Director has himself been a Non Resident Landlord so understands the issues and the anxieties relating to letting your property whilst you are based overseas.

It is also probable that you leave the UK part way through the tax year, if you pay tax through normal PAYE this will normally mean that you have paid too much tax and are due a refund. Our standard Non Resident Landlord Self Assessment Tax Return Service will ensure that you receive 100% of this refund. We charge a one time£99.00 plus VAT fee for a Non Resident Tax Return, any money that is due to you as a refund will be paid directly to your account from HMRC.

HMRC have introduced a new system of applying fines for late self assessment returns, before 2011 if no tax was owed then no fines could be levied, however this has now changed, even if you do not owe any tax you will still be liable to fines starting at £100 and increasing alarmingly on all self assessment returns that are late irrespective of whether or not you owe any tax. This is a very good reason to think about your Non Resident tax return at the earliest opportunity. We are able to help you at a fraction of the cost that the daily fine regime of HMRC can end up costing.
