Oddly, those landlords who are non UK resident have not had to pay Capital Gains Tax (CGT) when selling their UK investment property. The government have however confirmed that this perk, or perhaps oversight, is to be abolished from April 2015.
But this “levelling of the playing field” between ...more ...
