We have our old PPOR in the UK which we kept and let when we moved here 8 years ago. Just got a letter forwarded from my Dad about the new UK tax changes for landlords. Basically, any new purchases of IP's will incur an additional 3% stamp duty surcharge on top of the regular stamp duty, and in addition, from 2020 mortgage interest will no linger be deductible from income! This will be phased in over the next few years. New rules for buy-to-let | Barclays Doesn't affect us as the total rent we receive doesn't exceed the tax free threshold anyway, regardless of deductions, but may affect other expats on here? Or would it? As a Australian Resident, even if you're UK tax bill rocketed due to UK derived income, would it be offset as a tax credit back on your Australian return anyway? Or do tax credits only apply up to the level at which the tax would have been payable at in Australia? It will be interesting to see if Australia take on a similar system, our tax bill (I guess as many others), would go through the roof if the same changes came in here. We'd likely have to completely sell up. Cheers.
