There is a fine line where landlords risk losses by cutting legitimate costs.

Imagine that your boiler at home had stopped working.

What are the implications of being an overseas landlord? 

 

All owners of property in the UK are required to pay tax on any rental income they receive, unless the income after allowable expenses is less than the individual’s personal allowances.

These rules are outlined in the Non-Resident Landlord Scheme (NRL), which operates for rental income paid on or after 6th April 1996.
