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)
