Individuals – UK Tax
Living in The UK
As a UK tax resident not everyone in the UK has to lodge a UK Tax Return with HM Revenue & Customs.
The UK tax year runs from 6th April to 5th April. If you are:
- self-employed as a ‘sole trader’ and/or earned more than £1,000
- a partner in a business partnership
- earning greater than £100,000pa
- foreign sourced income greater than £2,000pa
- have a liability to UK Tax
- Income from renting out a property (UK or Overseas).
- Tips, commission and royalties.
- Income from savings, investments and dividends.
- Foreign/Overseas sourced income.
If you sell a UK residential property that has not been your main residence throughout you may need to report the gain online using an additional Capital Gains Tax Return. You need to report and pay any tax within 30 days of completion of the sale. This is separate and in addition to the annual UK tax return.
We at GM Tax provide fixed fee quotes for advisory work and UK annual tax returns and Capital Gains Tax returns.
