Capital Gains Tax Reporting – 60 Days
Many people don’t know that when they sell a property in the UK and have capital gains tax to pay, they only have 60 days to report this and pay the tax owed.
If you’re a non-resident, you have to file even if you made a loss !
Do you need to file a Property Disposal Form?
> Are you selling, or have you recently sold, a residential property in the UK?
> Was the property rented out at any time of ownership, or was it not your primary residence (i.e a second home)?
If you have answered YES to the two questions above then you may be required to report the disposal and pay any capital gains tax due on the sale within 60 days.
Capital Gains Tax for Expats / Non-Residents

Whether you need to file a report and/or pay CGT will depend on several factors including:
