    Property base price for book value

    Hi, I am looking at buying a small piece of land for B1 commercial property development. If I buy the land for say £100K through a property company and then lend the Co £500K to build out the development would the base value of the property in the company now be £600K if and when the property is sold? All responses appreciated...

    I think your question should be best answered by an accountant because "book value" was usually applied to cost of a property asset purchased by an investment company and recorded in the balance sheet of its accounts . But nowadays, the accounting standards require assets to be shown at the market value on 31st Dec 2016.( on whatever is the company year end date ) .

    For your "development" company, the accounts would show £600K as director's loans and the new property as "stock at cost"

    ( I am not an accountant so my comments may not be correct ).

        Thank you Gordon, didn't see your response this afternoon. I will look at this with fresh eyes tomorrow as it's late now.
        I've put some figures in my reply to a post just now but answers below to your questions.

        a] £80k Jan 2021 sale price.
        b] As property purchased before...

        I appreciate 'ignorance' is no excuse, however there are some mitigating factors, i.e. due to illness etc.

        1. Previous family home rented out - terrible tenants - left owing rent, bad repairs etc. [usual story for some] subsequently property not let for 2 years for a number of reasons while...

        Andrew, apologies only just seen your post [was it awaiting approval did you say?] answers are:

        Purchased March 1982 as joint tenancy - so equal split of 33 1/3% each party
        Parent 2 died September 2007 - as joint tenancy I inherited their share - so at this point I own 100% of property...

        I wasn't aware that refurbishment deductions only applied in terms of letting out the property. On the CGT calculator it asked 'How much have you spent on improvements since you became the property owner'.....

        Here's the timeline:

        March 1982 - 1992 3 Owners,...

        JP Keates et al - thank you very much for your assistance. I have this afternoon emailed an accountant to try and get an appointment urgently. I hadn't realised it was all so complicated and it was remiss of me to not be aware of the CGT changes made in 2020 due to not renting out the property. Thanks...

        Refurbishment while you were living there is only allowable against CGT if it was solely and exclusively for the business, so if it was to prepare the property to be let, it would be OK.
        If it was simply to improve what was then your home, it fails the basic test.

        Get yourself to...

        The probate resets a lot of the stuff, but my main response was unapproved

        You are really short on detail:

        Date (year & month) bought in joint names ______ (what % was yours then)
        Date it converted to your sole name ______ (presumable date of death of parent 2?)
        Declared vale at probate _________
        Capital expenses between date of probate 2...

        We were all joint owners. Bought it with parents. I lived there for 10 years before buying own home. I became sole owner upon their deaths. Rented out since 2007-2019. Empty last two year as trying to sell. Hence I was off the landlord radar. I am now extremely worried by your statement that refurbishment...

        Let us know the exact timescale and money involved year by year - I am sure some kind person (or even myself) with do a calculation for you so that you can assess the risks involved
