      If you could sell one flat every year you'd get every year's cgt allowance. Is that a possibility?
      To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

        If the properties haven't been let, this is probably going to be subject to income tax not CGT.

        When the property was split, your residence became the property you moved into, and the two new properties were created.
        The work done on those units was development, not investment.
        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).

            Are you saying you bought the house 10 years ago and occupied whole house for 5 years as your main residence?

            Then 5 years ago, you converted the house to 3 studios units and lived in one studio for last 5 years and let out the other 2 studio units ?

                Assuming you have had the property for 5 years period , ans lived for 2 years in whole house followed by 3 years in one of the studios.

                The estimated capital gain if you sell for £110K less £30K purchase = £80K over 5 years .

                The capital gain for 2 years residence in whole house = £80K x 2/5 = £32K will be exempt for cgt

                For the remaining capital gain of £48K , you can claim 1/3 exemption for residence living in one of the studios . This leaves £32K which is taxable but you can claim £11K capital gains allowance . So you probably have about £21K capital gain to pay tax at 18% or 28%.

                  jpkeates,

                  the other directors can't withhold information from them - I am my husband's agent as he has dyslexia and has difficulty with all this. This has been explained to the director but he does not like me and chooses not to recognise in that case anything I/my husband writes.
                  ...

                  Hi, Please can someone tell me if Corporation Tax only becomes payable to the IR on sale of an asset.
                  My husband is a director of a property development company - there are only 3 directors.
                  He wants to leave and there is no communication with the other directors and it is difficult to get...

                  If your husband is a director, the other directors can't withhold information from them; unless there are some very specific rules in the company articles - and they wouldn't normally be appropriate in a property development business (which are usually set up with boilerplate documentation).
                  The...

                  Thanks Gordon999. I have been phoning around about this today. This is a property development Ltd co. it had problems and so in 5 years only managed to develop 1 property - a house into flats. My husband owns one third of the company.

                  It is not being sold. The other directors need to...

                  The company pay CT on the "trading profit" reported in the annual accounts.( which are filed annually at Companies House).

                  After the asset (the building) has been sold, the trading profit will be reported in the next annual accounts by accountant and CT will be payable to...

                  Hello everyone. Can I rent my 4 bed property to students and holiday makers at the same time? For example 3 bedrooms will be used for students and 1 bedroom will be used as a holiday let. Would this have any tax/council tax implications? Would it be classed as a holiday let and be liable for business...
