    What do you include on your CGT HMRC calculation?

    We think our CGT for a house we let (we used to live in it) but then sold will be zero, and don't have to fill this out until next year (I hope) but thinking ahead (or do we need to fill it out at all?):

    Is it as simple as attaching a PDF with the following:

    Bought for X on day/month/year
    Sold for Y on day/month/year
    Costs of buying was B (including stamp duty, solicitors fees, etc)
    Costs of selling was S (estate agents fees, solicitors fees)
    Allowances for each person = £11,300
    Percentage of time lived in = 80% (including last 18 months which is given by HMRC as us being resident)

    Gain = (Y-X-B-S)
    Amount covered by Private Residence Relief = Gain * 0.8
    Amount Subject to CGT = Gain * 0.2

    CGT gain for each person (2) = (Amount Subject to CGT / 2) - £11,300 (this comes out negative, so equates to zero liability)

    Does that look about right, and do you need to include more specifics than this? (e.g. exact dates of tenants, address of property, receipts for solicitors etc)

    I've just read about Lettings Releif which I didn't know you could clam for as well as Private Residence Relief, so my new summary calculation would be as below. Be grateful if anyone who's done this before could comment.:

    Bought for X on day/month/year
    Sold for Y on day/month/year
    Costs of buying was B (including stamp duty, solicitors fees, etc)
    Costs of selling was S (estate agents fees, solicitors fees)
    Allowances for each person = £11,300
    Percentage of time lived in = 80% (including last 18 months which is given by HMRC as us being resident)

    Profit = (Y-X-B-S)
    Amount covered by Private Residence Relief = Profit * 0.8
    Chargeable Gain = Profit * 0.2
    Amount covered by Lettings Relief = Profit * 0.2 (if less than 40k, and less than Profit * 0.8)

    Amount to pay CGT Tax on = Profit - (Amount covered by Private Residence Relief) - (Amount covered by Lettings Relief)


    Amount to pay CGT per person (2) = (Amount to pay CGT Tax on / 2) - £11,300 (this comes out negative, so equates to zero liability)

      You best bet is to take a look at the CGT section of a self assessment tax return. You do fill in that stuff, but not in quite the way you discuss. Then do a lot of reading and ask your explicit questions here with numbers. Someone may be enthused to help.

        Well if CGT was not payable on the first slice it won't be on the second.

        I don't see that you retained a benefit, but I can't find any case law to that effect. But if rent was payable it would have gone in both directions (you would have paid your son half the rent and he would have paid...

        5 years ago i gifted part of my property to my son as joint tenants. We lived in the property together. So its possibly a grob.

        Now we want to go our separate ways. Could he buy my share out so he owns the whole house. And i use the money to buy elsewhere. Could this introduce a IHT or...

        Interesting that it may not be a grob as we own it all together. But surely hmrc will view it as i retained a benefit.

        Its our only main property i dnt think any cgt will be due. I was asking will cgt be due if i make another gift or sell my share to get my name of deeds?
        I ask because...

        Although they were BOTH living there and both owned it -- so the share gifted is probably not a GROB. It would be if only the OP was living there (owning only a portion) and not paying rent.

        It depends on the proportion - if the OP owned 1% and paid no rent - I think it would be in GROB...

        Ok thanks.
        So as i already did a gift of the property a few years back. Do i have to to pay cgt on the rest of the property when i gift it over or sell it to son as cash?...

        If you gift someone a property (or part of one) and carry on living there, the gift has reservations.
        So you either need to move out or start paying market rate rent to live there to end that situation.

        Any transaction done at an undervalue is treated by HMRC as being at market value,...

        Grob meaning gift with reservation.

        What if the purchase is below market value. The share is worth a market value of 250k but i can only afford to pay 200k. How will hmrc view it?

        In another view i already made a gift of the property to him as joint tenant, how is the best...

        I don't know what a grob is in this context.

        It was a gift with reservation, so, unless you are paying rent, the property is still in your estate for IHT purposes.

        As long as your son doesn't live in the new property, I don't see that POAT would apply, but it's not something...

        Hi Guys,

        My wife and myself bought a property in December 2018. It needed repairs and other work such as:

        1) A New roof (Tiles felt and battens) due to porous tiles
        2) A new kitchen as it was in a bad state of repair and no one would spruce it up
        3) A new bathroom,...
