    CGT and income

    Considering selling our rental property and trying to estimate how much CGT is due. We are both basic rate tax payers and the gain from the property will take us into higher rate, so the amount of tax we pay will depend on income for that year – it does vary year to year. I presume the relevant income is for the tax year in which you sell the property (not the previous one), as I cannot find any mention of this.

    Is this correct? So, if the house is sold on 6th April 2023, it is income for 2023-24 that counts?

    But, I believe CGT has to be reported and paid within 2 months, so how will it be worked out in that case? Do we/HMRC (which?) estimate our income, and then correct it at the end of the tax year?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    60 days not 2 months.
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      You estimate your income for this year and declare and pay the tax accordingly.
      When you complete your tax return for the tax year, the figures are adjusted then.
      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).

        Yes

        You do, or better an accountant but essentially you report and pay the gain at HMRC https://www.gov.uk/report-and-pay-yo...r-6-april-2020 estimating what you need to, and then report it again essentially in your tax return when all the facts are known. Tax paid earlier is deducted from the final liability.

              Is a red book valuation an "open market value"?

              the Red Book, the RICS manual for valuers, the open market value ("OMV") is the best price obtainable in a transaction completed on the date of death.

              Is this the correct definition please?

              even with an RICS' firm's valuation, if the valuers at HMRC think it low they will still challenge it. Ive just dealt with an estate the valuation date for which was during lockdown, and with extensive tenanted interests. The RICS firm arrived at their figure by a completely different methodology...

              A written valuation for probate from an estate agent or 2

              then after it’s sold you need to declare the actual value it sold for

              For assessing property value for estate tax, you would approach 2 or more surveyor firms for their valuation and choose the one who gives the lowest valuation.

              Thanks everyone I took professional advise from a qualified lawyer who confirmed that in my case I can't enjoy a lower rate. I kind of knew the answer but was clutching on straws . My oversimplified interpretation based on his advise is: HMRCs logic is if you have more than one property you pay higher...

              Hi Gurus,
              I am trying to figure out if I need to pay the 2nd stamp duty.
              I am buying a property which would be my main residence.
              I currently live in a property that I pay rent for as a tenant.
              However I own another property which I had bought to live in and had paid the lower...

              The manual is clear, Kekdal will not be able to claim a refund if the BTL is disposed of after purchasing the new home. I don't know the circumstances the other posters to which you refer but they cannot be the same as Kekdal's as they would not be due a refund.

              I don't think it would be...

              I used to believe that as well - the HMRC manuals are pretty clear about the situation in my view.

              Which made the surcharge rules a real trap for anyone who owned a let property (maybe for some years) and, who then wanted to buy a home of their own).
              But some people claim to have...

              Kekdal won’t be able to reclaim the higher rate of SDLT. That only works when someone buys a new main residence whilst keeping the old main residence, pays the higher rate of SDLT and then sells the old main residence within 3 years of completing the purchase of the new main residence. Then a claim...

              It seems to depend on the timing.

              I used to think that if you owned another property which you let, you were just screwed, because of the second property thing (even if it was your residence you were buying).

              I've been advised otherwise, and that you would pay and reclaim....
