Tax advice for overseas landlords
Landlords considered to be a non-resident for tax purposes have to pay United Kingdom Income Tax on any rents received from Property in the UK under the Finance Act 1995. Unless an “Exemption Certificate” is received from the Inland Revenue specifically permitting Home Minders to pay rental monies to the landlord without the deduction of tax, Home Minders is obliged by Law to deduct tax at the appropriate rate as directed by HM Treasury on all monies received and account to the Inland Revenue for these monies on a quarterly basis.
Whilst landlords are responsible for obtaining their own “Exemption Certificate”, we can advise you of how to go about it and supply you with the relevant forms to complete. It is important to note that the certificates are non-transferable between agents.
