star this property answer text <p>Like UK companies non-resident companies pay tax on their rental income from UK properties. There are commercial reasons for UK property being held through non-UK resident companies. However, the government has taken action to remove the tax advantages available from holding UK property through offshore companies. This action includes:</p><ul><li><p>making sure that offshore property developers are taxed on the profits they make from developing UK land;</p></li><li><p>from April 2019 taxing non-residents on all the gains they make from UK land and buildings;</p></li><li><p>and from April 2020, moving the taxation of rental income received by offshore companies from income tax to corporation tax will ensure that the same tax rules and tax rates will apply to property income no matter where the company is resident.</p><p>This action will raise significant tax revenue, and will ensure a fairer system for taxing income and gains on UK property.</p></li></ul> more like this
