    Capital Gains tax

    Hello,

    I purchased a property for around 200K in 2010. I temporarily lived there, albeit for only a month so I do not think I can gain any relief for that period of residence. However it has been let ever since and in January 2014 I will be moving back there for at least 6 months, until I upgrade to a bigger property to live in.

    I was wondering about my capital gains tax relief and also about the PPR relief?

    How much tax would i be liable for if lets say I sold the property after Aug 2015 with a selling price of 350K?

    Regards

    It is unlikely that your temporary occupation of the property will qualify for PPR relief.

    If no PPR relief, then no Lettings Relief either.

    I assume you mean January 2015?

    Have you read HMRC's Help Sheet HS283 on the subject?

      Hi,

      Yes I meant to say that I will be moving back into the property 2015, for a period of at least 6 months. After this time I would be able to claim PPR and lettings relief right?

        A year (or longer) would be preferable.

        Nor should the property be listed for sale or letting with any Estate Agents.

        Council Tax, bank statements, utilities etc should all go to this address.

          And, when you move back to your home - your intention was/is that it is going to be your 'permanent residence', later on, say after a year - you then changed your mind and decided you wanted to move. If you do go down this route - as stated by King-Maker, all documentation relating to utilities, banking etc and most importantly the electoral is updated to confirm your address.

            Yes - that's essentially it.

            You should contact HMRC and tell them that you have a new source of income as a landlord and they'll tell you how they want you to report the income (probably an annual self assessment tax return).
            In a couple of years you'll need to do quarterly returns...

            Hi,

            I'm currently receiving the rental income for my dads properties. I'm currently fully managing the properties for him and the tenants are paying the rent into my account. Once I receive the rent, I pay my dad a fixed amount and I keep the rest. Is this legal? And if so, do I pay tax...

            This is really helpful. My dad has changed the tenancy agreement and named me as landlord, so all payments are made to me. Therefore, all I need to do is declare all the income in the year as income and any payments to my dad, as expenses?

            Also, does this need to be in writing. At the moment...

            It's legal.

            If you're named as the landlord on the tenancy agreements, your business is rent to rent.
            The amount you pay your father is a business expense, so you'll end up paying tax on the profit, but you need to declare the full amount as income and the payment to your father as...

            Wondering if anyone has any experience with one of these please?

            I received a letter from HMRC a few months ago stating they were investigating my property affairs. I was told I could provide documentation regarding it to help but if I didn’t wish then they would complete the check on...

            I know it’s 1% difference but was really asking what the legal implications are of either transferring it into 100/0 or 99/1. I’m not an expert in this field in any way shape or form and am merely asking for advice....
