A CGT charge may arise on the disposal of land. In order to calculate the capital gain or loss arising, a valuation is required where:
 
the land was owned at 31 March 1982 (in order to determine the ‘base cost’ of the property);
the disposal was a bargain not at ‘arm’s length’;
the disposal was to a connected person;
