We have been back in the U.K. for just over two years now and were in Australia for 10. When we first moved we transferred a personal pension and my civil service works pension into 2 Australian super funds. My question is, when we reach 60 (our preservation ages) how long do you have to be resident in Australia for to withdraw your funds? For example could you take an extended holiday for a few months? Is so we would then transfer the money back to the U.K. using Moneycorp or the like and invest it here. Then we would just declare to HMRC the interest gained each year? Like you do on U.K. bank accounts/investments. Is that the way to do it? Otherwise we would just transfer amounts each year that would keep us under or just over the tax free threshold. Any advice greatly received! Thanks.
Hi, I am married but my wife will migrate to Australia and be tax resident there probably for 2 or 3 yrs before I will migrate myself. She will work and pay taxes in Australia and live in a house in Australia that we will buy. I will stay in the UK in our main residence where my wife and I have lived for 16 years. When I sell the family home in the UK (let's say in 2 years from now) what is the CGT situation? I'm pretty sure I would have no CGT liability as I'm resident in the house and a UK tax payer. The question is really about my wife's situation. Is there a CGT liability in both the UK AND in Australia? Are there any allowances for it being her "main" residence despite not having lived there for 2 years? I read somewhere that to get CGT relief in the UK she must live in the UK house for 90 days in the year. This may not be possible in her case. I've started thinking about taking her name off the deeds of the house as a solution but it seems a bit drastic!! Thanks in advance for your comments! Skippy
Alan Collett posted a topic in Money & FinanceTucked away in the UK Chancellor’s Autumn Statement of last week is some festive cheer – the continued availability of the UK personal allowance for non-UK resident individuals until April 2017 at least. What is more, the UK personal allowance will increase to £10,600 from the 6th of April, 2015. As some will know, there has been an ongoing consultative exercise by the UK Government into the withdrawal of the UK personal allowance for non-UK resident individuals. This would have impacted most those persons with UK income that is not also taxable in the country in which they are residing. It would also have opened up additional compliance obligations for those non-UK residents who presently do not complete a UK personal income tax return each year. For example, HM Revenue is often happy to allow non-UK residents with UK rental property to not complete an annual tax return where the net rental income is less than the personal allowance. The detailed commentary from the UK Government in the 2014 Autumn Statement reads as follows: Restricting entitlement to the personal allowance for non-residents – At Budget 2014 the government launched a consultation on whether or not to restrict the Income Tax personal allowance for non-residents. Whilst the government believes there is a strong rationale for doing this, it recognises it is a complex change for both employers and individuals who may be affected. The government will continue to discuss implementation of this change with stakeholders. Should the government decide to proceed, a more detailed consultation will be undertaken. No change will come into effect before April 2017. Best regards.
Hi, I have recently become an Australian permanent resident, meaning I now have to declare my UK income here. My question fro this forum is does anyone know if I have to declare my UK income for the last UK financial year (April 2013-March 2014) or for the dates of the Australian financial year (July 2013 - June 2014). Just a bit confused as I have only paid tax on my UK income up to April 2014 so not sure how to report my income and how much tax I have paid on it in the UK from the period from April to June this year. Hope that makes some kind of sense and that someone can help me. Thanks.
