However, I'm still awaiting clarification on this from my accountant as, reading here, I'm not sure now if that only applies if I have been non-resident from the beginning of the current tax year when the capital distribution is done, as I have only been non-resident since July.
    Hi Neo

    Definitely something for your accountant to clarify on that is. Non residency is quite a complex area and normally depends on whether split year treatment is available, RDR3 is your guide to determining your residency status if you want a light read!

    Thanks again for that, ContrataxLtd.

    I've just read RDR3 and I am classed as UK resident for the current tax year under the second automatic UK test because I had a home in the UK for at least 30 days during the tax year (the third automatic overseas test doesn't apply because I worked for more than 30 days in the UK during the tax year).

    However, split-year does apply to me under Case 1 with the relevant period beginning 22 June as that is when I started my job in Mauritius.

    From what I understand then, I will not be liable to pay CGT when I receive the capital distribution from my company.

    Sounds about right Neo, make sure you do clarify it all with your accountant though. You don't want to get into a situation where you pay tax that you weren't expecting, especially if you come back to the UK just a little too early so that the gain crystallises on your return to the UK!
