    CGT calculation ?

    Quick question if I may.

    I am a higher rat tax payer. Bought a BTL property in 1989 for £50k. Sold it recently for £150k,

    Buying and selling and building costs probably come in at around the £10k mark.

    What will be tha approximate CGT ?

    As far as I can see I do not qualify for any relief (e.g. never lived there)

    thanks for any help

    I assume you have never lived in the property and any building costs are capital in nature not repairs/revenue the 150-50-10 - your unused CG Allowance £10,600 * 28% so £24,753.

      ok thanks for that

      wow .. that much !

      too bad they abolished taper relief ... they talk up dropping 1 penny on petrol prices yet behind the scenes you lose another £10k or so because of a simple budget change !

        Scarcely. Taper relief would have taken your tax rate down to 24%. So cost you only £4k. If you'd only owned it 5 years, you'd have won. Swings and roundabouts.

          i thought taper relief would have reduced the liable amount by 40%

            And would therefore have taken the 40% tax rate down to 24% having reduced it by 40%.

              Wouldn't there also have been around a 30% indexation allowance from 1989 to 1998?
              To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

                Taper Relief replaced Indexation, you did not get both of them. I assume you are not married, not that it matters know as you have already sold it but yu could have transferred a large enough share to the spouse to mop up their Capital gain allowance, thus dropping the CGT to circa £16,000.

                  From http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/stats/capital_gains/cgt_b.htm

                  The current capital gains tax system generally only taxes gains which have arisen since March 1982, allowing relief for inflation up to April 1998. Taper relief applies from 1998-99 and the proportion of gain chargeable is in accordance with the Table TA.7. Chargeable gains, after reliefs, are taxed at rates equivalent to the individual's income tax rate as if they were an additional amount of taxable income (taxable savings income from 1999-2000). There are separate tax rates for personal representatives and trustees. There are certain exemptions and reliefs, which are listed in the tables T1.5, TB.1 and TB.2 .

                    I remember all the complaints when the changes were announced and many owner transferred ownership between spouses to catch the indexation. HMRC eventually backed off and allowed indexation to be locked against the gain up to April 1998 if disposed of prior to 6 April 2008. Regards Peter

                      Elderly parents in early 80s, one in not so good health.

                      Lived in the same home (no mortgage etc) for 50+ years - now worth approx £180,000 - £200,000 and they have minimal savings.

                      Two points:

                      1. Why should the tax payer pick up the bill for the parents care if they have assets? I really don't understand this point of view.

                      2. I would rather pay for my care and get a choice than rely on the Council & get possible a worse standard of care.

                      I'm not quite quite sure why you think they are being robbed? They have assets so can afford to pay for themselves. I would consider the council tax payers - many of whom can only dream of owning their own home - to have been robbed if they have to pay for it.
                      Totally agree about those who could...

                      Hello everyone,
                      I have had an offer accepted on a property purchase, subject to a surveyors report of £395,000 in England.


                      I am currently looking at surveyors but i just wanted to know where i stand in terms of stamp duty, costs etc.

                      I have phoned 5 different solicitors

                      It would seem there is nobody with any knowledge on here, which is strange as i would have thought many people would have purchased blocks of flats and even if they did pay the wrong stamp duty by mistake as they did not know , HMRC do give you a one year window from completion to claim it back

                      That is only an example where it says houses the actual term is `dwelling`
                      one title with 2 or more dwelling relief can then be added, however most people are unaware

                      Again taken from HMRC website it states if (6 or more dwellings which mine is 8) it may be treated as a non residential transaction for the purposes of SDLT so will owning my own home have any effect on this?? Presumably i am thinking 1% minimum would still apply?

                      whilst you are correct in most cases however that is not taking into account SDLT relief for multiple dwellings
                      here is a copy and paste from HMRC own website, hence the reason for the post


                      Example
                      You buy 5 houses for £1 million.
                      £1 million divided by 5 is £200,000....

                      That's part of why it's worth getting professional advice - sometimes paying some CGT at 18% is more appealing than IHT at 40%.

                      But lots of people don't have to pay any IHT at all, and if the bulk of the estate is a £200k property it would be well under the threshold at which any tax is...
