When is Capital Gains Tax (CGT) due on UK property?
For UK property disposals which are not your main home, capital gains tax (CGT) will be due on gains which exceed the annual exempt amount (AEA).
When does a gain on UK property have to be reported?
From 6 April 2020, if you’re a UK resident, you’ll have to report and pay any CGT due within 30 days of the completion date. You do not have to report the gain if there is no tax due. If you’re a non-resident, you must report all sales or disposals of UK property, even if you have no tax to pay or have made a loss.
How are disposals of UK property reported within 30 days?

If you’re an agent, you’ll need to use your client’s Capital Gains Tax on UK Property account after requesting authorisation via your Agent Services Account.
