The following Personal Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
Chattels are defined as “any tangible moveable property (or, in Scotland, corporeal moveable property) other than money”.
Chattels include, for example, paintings, antiques, furniture, vehicles, boats, racehorses, jewellery, musical instruments, computers, wines and spirits and collectible items.
In order for pre-owned asset tax (POAT) to apply to the individual for any tax year, he must be resident in the UK during that year, see the Residence ― overview guidance note.
Where the individual is UK resident but is domiciled outside the UK, the POAT applies only if the asset is situated in the UK. For this purpose, a person is domiciled in the UK at any time if he would be domiciled, or treated as domiciled, in the UK under IHT legislation.

See Simon's Taxes I3.740.
