I moved back to the UK 7 years ago from Cyprus. I have dual citizenship for both countries. I bought a flat in Cyprus in 2003 where I lived until 2013 when I moved to the UK and moved into my partner’s house until today 2021.

I sold my flat in Cyprus in 2019 and paid all taxes and capital gains tax there.

I left my money in my Cyprus bank account as I was going to buy another property. Things have changed, and I am now wanting to buy a property in the UK and will want to bring over my savings and money made when I sold my flat.

How do inform HMRC?

Is the money received for the flat taxable even though I paid tax in Cyprus? Also, my savings were made while I lived and worked there, so I assume they are not taxable?

Any help or advice appreciated.

You should have informed HMRC in 2019 if you were then resident in the UK.

Were you in the North or the South as that may make a difference to how tax is applied i.e. EU vs non-EU?
