NEW PROPERTY TAXES

GET READY FOR CHANGES TO TAX PAYMENTS ON UK PROPERTY SALES.

The deadlines for paying capital gains tax after selling a residential property in the UK changed on 6 April 2020.

If you don’t tell the taxman about any capital gains tax within 30 days of selling your property you may be subject to penalties and interest on the tax you owe.

It’s important that everyone involved in the sale of residential property understand these changes.

CAPITAL GAINS TAX.

Capital gains tax is the tax on the profit you make when you sell UK property.

WHEN YOU NEED TO REPORT THE TAX WITHIN 30 DAYS.

You need to report and pay capital gains tax when you sell:

A property that is not your home

A holiday home

A buy to let property

or A property that you have inherited.

Please note you won’t have to make a report or pay tax when you sell your home and you meet the criteria for full private residence relief.
