Fees and Taxes When Buying UK Real Estate from the UAE
As with any investment, if you’re purchasing property in the UK it’s vital to understand both UK and UAE tax liabilities as well as how to structure your investment in an efficient manner. In the case of the UK, taxation liability is determined by a person’s residential and domicile status, so working this out is a sensible first step for overseas investors.
Essentially, an individual is considered a UK resident if they; spend 183 days or more in the UK during a tax year, arrive with the intention of staying permanently or to work in the UK for three years or more. Social and business ties can have an effect on resident status but will largely be considered on a case-by-case basis.
