Overseas Landlords (NRL)
If you are a landlord with a property in the UK but reside outside the UK, you are liable to take a Non-Residential Landlord. It deals with non-resident landlords. It guides you about your tax payments as an (NRL). Your estate agent has to fulfil the requirements of the scheme. They provide the data to deduct the basic tax rate from your rental. Landlords who stay or reside out of the UK for less than six months are not considered Non-Resident landlords.
- If any estate agent gets a lease for your benefit, they have a legislative duty to deduct 20% of the total rent and deposit it to the Inland Revenue every three months.
- Sometimes there is more than one property owner; in that case, each partner is at risk of paying the tax individually. Both earnings and expenses are distributed equally between the two parties.
- If you receive the rent through a direct deposit from a tenant, then the tenant must comply with the Inland Revenue and deposit 20% of the rent to the Inland Revenue quarterly.
- If people from forces, members of HM and crown Servants stay outside of the UK for six months; they are considered a part of (NRL).
- If you want to keep matters of tax personalized to you or your solicitor, you can apply by filling out and submitting the NRL1 form. But be reminded that it will not exempt you from the UK tax. In the case of the joint landlord, each owner would have to apply for NRL 1 separately.
