The content of this newsletter applies to non-UK companies holding UK investment property and which derive most or all of their UK income from the property.
With effect from April 2020 all non-resident UK property rich companies have been subject to the full UK Corporation Tax regime instead of the previous simplified Income Tax regime.
The note from HMRC reads as follows:
The accounts and Balance Sheet, as prepared under the company’s jurisdictional statute or constitution, will be required. If the taxonomy is non-UK or non-US GAAP e.g. Swiss/French/Lux/BVI then accounts are to be sent in as an untagged PDF but the computations will require iXBRL tagging. Where no formal accounts are required under the home jurisdiction, a set of management accounts with Profit & Loss and Balance Sheet should be filed.
iXBRL tagging is a hidden tag applied to key entries in a submitted document that indicates to the HMRC software for entry validation.
