UK Property Taxation

  • When:
    Wednesday, 07 March 2018, 6:30pm - 8:30pm
  • Where:
    The British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai, 上海英国商会 (建议从泰兴路上的张园入口进入)
    No.9, Sub-lane 56, Lane 590, Weihai Lu, Jing'an District
  • Price:
    RMB 100 including two drinks and snacks. Members only.

In the past two years, major changes to the taxation of residential property have been announced by the UK Government. You’ll be affected if you’re a: 

  • UK resident individual that lets residential properties in the UK or overseas
  • non-UK resident individual that lets residential properties in the UK
  • individual who lets such properties in partnership
  • trustee or beneficiary of trusts liable for Income Tax on property profits

The Chamber's Financial Services Focus Group invites Tony Smith, Head of the St. James’s Place Tax and Technical Team in Asia, to provide an overview of UK property taxation and how recent changes could impact expatriates in relation to income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax.

The levels and bases of taxation, and reliefs from taxation, can change at any time. The value of any tax relief depends on individual circumstances.

Location of the British Chamber Shanghai Office - we suggest that you enter the ZhangYuan community from the north gate on Taixing Lu (near Wujiang Lu)
