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.

Has Brexit affected UK Real Estate? 

Knowing your investment market is one of the most important things you can do in the wider investment process. Despite nearly three years of uncertainty, the results of the 2019 General Election seem to have secured a Government with a firm stance on Brexit.

Data from Knight Frank suggests that nearly 21% of respondents prefer the UK market for their investment, up from 11% in 2018. This is incredible news that has experienced a number of major political events during that time.

Many domestic buyers are more concerned about undersupply in the UK. While it can be a benefit for investors that have already bought – especially those that benefit from increased rental demand in city centres – it does mean that entering the market can have its own unique challenges. This is why it’s vital to work with the right partner, making sure you can take advantage of the potentially lucrative opportunities available up and down the UK today.
