    CGT From BTL portfolio

    I ve decided to give up on the BTL uk market - I m getting too old for this all and frankly want to move abroad

    I have had a property which was bought for 200K - It is now worth 500K.

    I realise that CGT will be due on the 300k which is a lot to stomach. I know I have a 12K CGT allowance but that i not much

    Can I gift this property to my niece or sell it at an undervalue - There seems to be rollover relief but I m not sure i understood it.

    You might think 300k pnl is a lot but inflation adjusted it is not that much

    Thanks to all for serious answers .

    CGT would still be due on the market value of the property.

      CGT is payable after disposal by sale or by gifting ( assuming no mortgage ) ..

      Assuming you are paying tax at 40% rate on your income, the capital gains is taxed at 28% rate.

      For capital gain of £300K less £12,300 capital gains personal allowance = £287,700 charged at 28% = £80,556 tax bill.

        It seems you are planning to leave UK having paid over £80000-Whitehall will be delighted.The good news is you take about £410000 with you

          You could re mortgage the property. Enjoy the proceeds, pay someone to manage it and pass on any remaining equity to your niece free of CGT or inheritance tax (depending on your full situation).

          Depends which is more important to you, getting out of BTL entirely or saving tax.

            Sell when you become non-resident... only gains that accrue after 5th April 2015 will be taxable. There are certain anti-avoidance provisions such as temporary absences abroad, so seek professional advice from a qualified tax adviser.

              Rollover relief doesn't apply here.

              When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
              Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

                Thank you. This is exactly what I am doing and I asked specific question about the five year outside Uk tax rule and whether that starts from day of sale or five years from date of departure

                  The capital gain is calculated from ( sales proceeds ) minus ( purchase cost plus improvement cost )

                  The cost of "new drive with paving stone " can be counted as part improvement ( cost can be apportioned ).

                  The cost of "re-tiling roof" can be...

                  My rental property is owned with my spouse as tenants in common. I own 90%, spouse 10% - HMRC were informed on Form 17 and this split included on TR1 in the DOT section when purchased

                  I want to gift 20% so split is 70% : 30%.

                  Hi all

                  I'm new to this forum so please be gentle

                  Background

                  I am sole owner of a BTL property (which is mortgaged).

                  I plan to assign 99% of the beneficial interest to my wife via a Declaration of Trust to use up her tax liability. I am a...

                  The cause of confusion is that there is both property law and then there are HMRC's processes and rules.

                  If you want to use a simple deed of trust and notify HMRC using form 17, it doesn't really matter what the legal position about assigning beneficial interest is, HMRC require that the...

                  Might be a silly question but I just want to be completely accurate. On the self assessment for my rental income I read something about rounding expenses up & income down. Now let's say my income was £7,020,40 and expenses were £556.83 making the final income £6,463.57. How exactly should I round...
