50/50 Partnership buyout

Postby gammyleg » Sat Feb 10, 2018 4:09 pm


First post and not all that tax-savvy I'm afraid.

My friend is in the process of being forced out of a simple 50/50 partnership as the partnership has turned VERY toxic. Once final sums are agreed my friend should hopefully walk away with approx £150k ( Not insubstantial but way below the true value of the business )
He would like to immediately reinvest this money to buy a similar business that is currently for sale.

Could someone advise on the tax implications of the monies received from the buy-out, and whether any of this can be offset against the purchase of the new business?

Hopefully this question has not been the tax equivalent of how long is a piece of string.

Can't advise on tax position without full info on what's being sold, for how much, and what it cost.
With a pinch of salt take what I say, but don't exceed your RDA
