Re: Buying house in UK to rent out

But how much percent tax do you pay on income in UK as a non resident? And do you have to pay a land tax? ( not capital gains tax ). I think UK has a tax agreement with Switzerland as Australia does?
UK income tax is between 0 and 45% (46% in Scotland) depending on income, and is the same for residents as for non-residents.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is between 0 and 12% of the purchase price.
There's a 3% surcharge if the purchase is for second home, or investment or it's made by a company / trust.

The UK govt are considering introducing a further 1% surcharge, if the buyer is not UK resident.
