    CGT when I sell let property?

    Hi can anyone give me an idea on how much CGT I will be liable for when I sell my rental property.
    I have owned the property for 7years and it has been rented out for that time, the tenant has now left and I would like to sell.
    The purchase price was £8,500, fees £500
    maintainence and costs of making the property a sellable one about £12000
    Selling price £95000, fees £2000. Thanks

    Go onto the Inland Revenue website and look at the CGT manual, it shows you exactly how to calculate cgt.

      Hi, new here, sorry if this has been asked already but I can't find the answer.

      I have just completed my tax return for 2020/21 as a landlord with a few properties. My income was 22k and my outgoings (maintainance, ground rent, insurance, mortgage payments etc) was 18k. The mortgages are...

      Hi
      New to this, buy to let property got in 2018 but renewing took time and COVID hit. Rented out since Dec 2020. I had Electrical work done completed in 2019, as had no income I had not filled in self assessment. Can I claim it in this tax year?

      If it was first let in December 2020, the costs allowable against income prior to that take place on the first day of the first tenancy for tax purposes.

      So, if you mean can you claim it on a tax return for April 2020 to April 2021, the answer is yes.
      You can't claim it for this tax...

      I started my limited company a year before buying the first property, then bought a second 2 months later, a third 3 months after that, a fourth 5 months after that and so on to where I am now. Our lenders have never said they want a separate company per property. Ive never heard of that, if it were...

      I don't think we disagree.

      The OP has one property and is looking to buy a second.
      At that point in that business, lenders will want a company per property.

      There's a point where that ceases to be the case, when the portfolio gets big enough, or, presumably when someone...

      i concur with James, once you get over 4 properties, they consider you to be a portfolio landlord and want to start seeing cashflow forecasts before lending to make sure the company is buoyant. Directors guarantees each time but no limits on number of properties or number of dofferent lenders.

      This is not true in my experience. I currently have eight properties in the same company, across a number of different mainstream BTL lenders, and none of them have batted an eyelid at the number.

      Where I have known lenders worry about the company is it doesn't have the correct SIC code...

      Depends to a great degree on tax regulations over the coming years. We only know what the rules are today, not what they'll be in future e.g. when you retire

      I expect chancellors to cut back on the advantages of people owning property through companies (well, wouldn't you if you were chancellor)...

      1. No. You have not sold the property yet

      2. 19% on profit by company.

      3. Seek advice from accountant.
