Service Description, Benefits & Features
The current approach to Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on property in the UK is complex. There is a divergence in the treatment of residents and non-residents in respect of non-residential property. On top of this, there is a variation in the CGT treatment, depending on the type and value of property being disposed of.
If you’re liable to pay CGT on the disposal of your property, our qualified Chartered Surveyors, who are RICS Registered Valuers, have the necessary knowledge and expertise to carry out valuations for this purpose. Capital Gains Tax may be payable when you’re ‘disposing of’ a property that has increased in value. Your tax obligations are calculated on their gains rather than the selling price.
For Capital Gains Tax, ‘disposing of’ a property includes: selling it, trading it for another property or asset, gifting it to somebody else and for gaining compensation, such as an insurance pay-out.’
Since 1982, any gain you make from a property investment is subject to Capital Gains Tax.
A property valuation is needed to provide reliable information on the worth of the property, and is especially useful where an individual or entity is charged much higher or lower taxes than they should be liable for. Our Chartered Surveyors & Registered Valuers are experienced in providing a detailed report for you to submit to your Accountant or HMRC. We can also negotiate for you if the District Valuer disputes your valuation.
It is important to consider the condition and status of the property at that date. If you have already sold the property, we can undertake this exercise on a drive-by valuation or desktop basis.
