In the United Kingdom, Capital Gains Tax from the sale of residential properties is calculated in a different manner than many other Capital Gains Taxes. For these sales, you are taxed 20% – 28% of the income gained from the sale of the property. These taxes do not apply to your home but apply when you sell buy-to-let properties, business premises, land, and inherited property. Essentially, these taxes apply when you sell any property that is not your home. However, if you choose to gift these properties to your spouse, civil partner, or to a charity, you do not need to pay any taxes on this at all, as no income is gained from this. If the property is a business asset, you may be eligible for tax relief, so ensure to seek advice from our professional tax accountant.
If you’re a non-resident of the UK, you’ll need to tell the country’s customs agency if you sell or dispose of any residential property in the country. This even applies if you’re merely representing a non-resident individual who is now deceased. Once sold, you have 30 days to report the sale to HMRC, or face interest charges and other penalties. Even if you calculate that you have no tax to pay, you must report this conveyance. The tax rate is the same as for residents of the UK, at 20%-28%.
It’s impossible to praise Tax Accountants too highly! They aren’t sales driven and deliver a professional quality service. They offer a tailored and bespoke service that matches individual needs. 100% would recommend them.
Tax Accountants called me shortly after I had set up a company just as I was looking for an account. They asked a few questions and my intentions and they explained about tax planning saving me the time of blindly fishing around in the dark.
Fantastic service, my highly specific needs were listened to and understood, and I was put in contact with a relevant specialist. Couldn’t have asked for any better. I would recommend to anyone looking for fast and reliable service.
