    I'm selling my rental property and would greatly appreciate some information on my CGT...

    Purchased flat in 2000 for £56000 and lived there until...
    Re-mortgaged for £105,000 in 2004 and rented out
    Selling it now for £160k

    Would very much appreciate any assistance in calculating my CGT liability in this scenario.

    Many thanks in advance.

    It would be a complete guess as you have not provided the dates. At least the MM/YYYY of purchase, first rental, and estimated exchange of contract date. Also provide the cost of acquisition and SDTL and the sales and legal fees. as these are deductible I also need your gross salary in the FY of disposal. I assume you are the sole owner. Regards Peter


      Purchase date 03/2000
      First rented date 09/2004
      Flat sale Exchange 15/08/2016
      SDLT £0
      Fees £3k
      gross salary £60k
      Sole owner yes



        Here is my guess :

        You have capital gains of 160K-56K= 104K after total 16 years ownership. The capital gains during the period under own residence is 4.5 years plus 18 months from moving out is exempt = 104K x 6/16 = 39K .

        The capital gain during letting is 104K x 10/16 = 65K . You can claims lettings relief up to 40K but cannot be more than 39K claimed for own residence.

        So the taxable capital gain = 65K -39K - 11K ( personal allowance ) = 15K . You can expect your tax bill charged at 28% rate = £4.2K


          Purchase 56,000 14/03/2000
          Disposal 160,000 15/08/2016
          Total Gain 101,000
          PRR 36,914 72 197
          Capital Gain 64,086
          Lett Relief 36,914 Qual Days 3805
          Net Gain 27,173
          CG Allow 11,100
          CGT 0 4,500
          CGT 0 0

          CGT Bill 4,500

          You do not say when you moved out and you have not included Acquisition costs and legal fees.
          Regards Peter

            Just joined PMC as Director and CS and on checking the documents handed to me for storage, there is a massive gap from 2010 to now! I have managed to find through other directors the meetings minutes for the past 9 years, however I am struggling to be given the full accounts. When I ask, I am told I...

          • Moving Back Into Let House
            by Sentaiwarrior

            I was wondering if anyone can provide me with advice.

            I used to live in my own house. I moved for work a few years ago and let my house (with consent to let).

            I'm planning to move back into my house which is currently still let. I've given the tenant three...

            No you can't do that. If the tenant actually broke stuff and you sort it before the tenancy ends, then maybe. At the start of putting a property out to rent you can make tax related expense claims - you can't have a double bite, fixing it for yourself at the other end....

            The wear and tear allowance has been removed so you could expense the actual costs of the items as an expense, on a like for like basis, only if you are then renting it out, if it is returning back to a residential property then you couldn't.

            Hi Folks,

            Looking for some general advice. I own 5 BTL properties individually and have 3 BTL properties as a LTD Company. My tax returns are relatively straight forward and I was thinking to do my own tax returns this year. My account charged me GBP1500 for the return for my Ltd Company,...

            I think its better for Ltd companies to have their annual accounts done by chartered accountant. Very difficult to get any bank loan without showing certified accounts.
