    CGT on Trust

    Does anyone know the CGT treatment for disposing of a property held in a bare trust ? What is the rate of CGT ?

    Who is the property being "disposed" to?

      The trust cgt rate is 28%.

      You should download HS294 from HMRC website and read about vulnerably beneficiary under bare trusts if it applies.

        To a third party not the beneficiary.

          Is this for Bare trusts. I think this is for Discretionary trusts.

            If you read thro HS294 again , you should find a paragraph on bare trusts.

              The way I am reading it is you are takes on the beneficiary as if the trust was not there . Just like income tax CGT is no different rule. I am getting advised by a tax accountant that there is no CGT on bare trusts.

                You should take the HS294 help sheet to your tax accountant or local tax office and discuss how the help sheet contents affect you. I am sure the tax man will their % of the capital gain.

                  Unless you're disposing to the beneficiary, the beneficiary is taxed on any gain as far as I know.

                    I appreciate 'ignorance' is no excuse, however there are some mitigating factors, i.e. due to illness etc.

                    1. Previous family home rented out - terrible tenants - left owing rent, bad repairs etc. [usual story for some] subsequently property not let for 2 years for a number of reasons while...

                    Thank you Gordon, didn't see your response this afternoon. I will look at this with fresh eyes tomorrow as it's late now.
                    I've put some figures in my reply to a post just now but answers below to your questions.

                    a] £80k Jan 2021 sale price.
                    b] As property purchased before...

                    Andrew, apologies only just seen your post [was it awaiting approval did you say?] answers are:

                    Purchased March 1982 as joint tenancy - so equal split of 33 1/3% each party
                    Parent 2 died September 2007 - as joint tenancy I inherited their share - so at this point I own 100% of property...

                    I wasn't aware that refurbishment deductions only applied in terms of letting out the property. On the CGT calculator it asked 'How much have you spent on improvements since you became the property owner'.....

                    Here's the timeline:

                    March 1982 - 1992 3 Owners,...

                    JP Keates et al - thank you very much for your assistance. I have this afternoon emailed an accountant to try and get an appointment urgently. I hadn't realised it was all so complicated and it was remiss of me to not be aware of the CGT changes made in 2020 due to not renting out the property. Thanks...

                    Refurbishment while you were living there is only allowable against CGT if it was solely and exclusively for the business, so if it was to prepare the property to be let, it would be OK.
                    If it was simply to improve what was then your home, it fails the basic test.

                    The probate resets a lot of the stuff, but my main response was unapproved

                    You are really short on detail:

                    Date (year & month) bought in joint names ______ (what % was yours then)
                    Date it converted to your sole name ______ (presumable date of death of parent 2?)
                    Declared vale at probate _________
                    Capital expenses between date of probate 2...

                    We were all joint owners. Bought it with parents. I lived there for 10 years before buying own home. I became sole owner upon their deaths. Rented out since 2007-2019. Empty last two year as trying to sell. Hence I was off the landlord radar. I am now extremely worried by your statement that refurbishment...

                    Let us know the exact timescale and money involved year by year - I am sure some kind person (or even myself) with do a calculation for you so that you can assess the risks involved
