The following Personal Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
Under the non-resident capital gains tax (NRCGT) regime, non-residents are subject to UK capital gains tax on the following disposals:
direct disposals of an interest in UK land (eg the non-resident disposes of UK land that they own)
indirect disposals of an interest in UK land, ie disposals of an asset that derive at least 75% of their value from UK land in which the taxpayer has a substantial indirect interest in the land (eg the non-resident disposes of shares in a company that owns UK land)
TCGA 1992, ss 1A(3)(b), (c), 2B(4)–(6)
The NRCGT rules in their present form were introduced from 6 April 2019 and may be referred to as NRCGT 2019. Other possible names for the regime are FA 2019 NRCGT or FA19 NRCGT.

‘Hold-over’ relief allows for the deferral of a gain that would otherwise arise in relation to a disposal. No capital gains tax (CGT) is due in respect of the disposal, but the base cost of the asset for the transferee for the purpose of a future disposal is reduced by an amount equal to the gain
