    CGT, B2L, no capital gain, how to complete HMRC SA return etc.

    Wife & SiL jointly inherited MiL's house some 4 years ago: It was then probate valued @ £280k by local estate agent, letter filed.

    They never resided in it but rented it out, rental income & expenses declared by both, 50/50. Rental income ceased before tax year 13-14.

    Sold in October 2013 for £260k. Proceeds split 50/50. No disputes between parties. All paperwork in order AFAIK.

    I'm now "helping" wife do her tax return for 13-14. No property pages to complete & she will include a note covering end of rental & sale of house to explain no property pages.

    I have never handled sale of B2L before. Am I correct that no capital gain section needs to be completed, but that I should include notes on what happened to illuminate HMRC's thinking??

    Regards & thanks in advance.

    No, she should complete the Capital Gain page as she can claim a loss off of future rentals. I take it your wife is completing on line?

      Thanks for prompt reply Claymore: She is v v v v unlikely to have any future rental income... But yes, doing it online & will complete capital gain page.

        One of the questions on the properties pages 'I think' asks how many properties do you rent, and have you disposed of any since the last tax return. Wife can also include the costs of solicitors and estate agents as a capital loss.

        Also, property isn't the only investment that has a capital gain - say your wife has some shares and then makes a fortune - she would be liable to pay CGT on the profit, but if she has already banked her loss from the property, then it would be offset against the new gain and a lower tax bill.

          Hi Gordon, unfortunately it was not, hence the question.

          I wondered if anyone else has been in this situation and what would you do about it? I now only own the one property (and live in it), but due to substantial renovation period before moving in the CGT will only increase now (assuming HPI increasing at 3.6% which is not unreasonable). I didn't understand...

          If the property has been your "main residence" since purchase, there is no tax on capital gain .

          The Daily Mail reported on 29 Oct 2021 the 1.25 p increase for social care levy commencing in 2022 , will take £16 Bil from our pockets. The freezing of personal allowance for income tax at £12570 until 2026 will take £19 Bill by 2025/2026.

          My accountant just finished my 2020/21 tax return, and my income is half of the previous year. I did not think it would be quite that bad. (Half my tenants moved out, and I had a job to replace them. Plus had to get fourteen EICR's!)

          I'm guessing you guys are in a similar boat. Never mind...

          There seems to be 2 problems ( I am not an accountant ) :

          (1.) The company has to pay £30,000 tax due to revaluation of property asset increased higher by £150,000 ( estimated). Does it have the cash in its bank account to pay ?

          ( 2) husband owns one third interest of property...

          Taxes bound to go up, huge amounts to pay for Covid & BR*X*it. Death & taxes, death & taxes.

          Holding off working out my position, wishing to remain cheerful for Christmas.

          Best wishes to all...

          ^^ please don’t take this the wrong way but £10 k down on what turnover or number of properties?

          i’ve done a lot of EICRs and remedial work over the last 18 months and a lot of it was because properties hadn’t been inspected and some were just dangerous....

          I'm about £10k down and it's mostly electrical work.

          I can't see this government putting up taxes anymore before the next election, although there's nothing to say that they won't figure out how to tax landlords more specifically - there's few votes lost there.
