Re: More than one transfer

Th initial transfer between the spouses at a time when the property was not their sole/main residence means that the recipient (ie wife) acquired the property at its original base cost to husband but at the date of the transfer. Any transfer back to husband from wife would again be at the original c...

Re: account in parents' name

It is not possible to hold an ISA on behalf of someone else (nor a joint ISA). ISA income (eg interest) is not subject to income tax. The interest income belongs to the ISA investors, ie your parents, not you. Depending upon all the circumstances if it's clear that you did not intend the monies to b...

Re: Declaration of Trust, SDLT and expense allocation.

The best approach is to adopt an arm's length basis as the start point. Wife would therefore acquire the 99% beneficial interest thus receiving 99% of the rental income but woulds also be expected to bear 99% of the expenses. However, an alternative arrangement between you/wife may be made re the ex...

Re: account in parents' name

Either you gifted the monies to your parents OR you (for some reason?) asked them to deposit the monies in their account t but on the clear understanding they were acting as your agent/bare. trustee.

Why did you do this?

Re: Which is the main residence?

On re-reading my ;post out seems a bit ambiguous. Can I clarify: where a couple have 2 homes and one is clearly the main residence, if they sell the main residence to replace with a new main residence, am I correct in understanding that they are not liable to the higher rate of SDLT? In the above ci...

Re: Garden plot with planning permission

Obtaining planning permission this should not affect any CGT charge. However, once steps are taken involving staring construction work (which I suggest would be the case) there would be an appropriation of the plot from investment to trading stock at which time a CGT charge would arise albeit covere...

Re: Which is the main residence?

I'm not clear if your concerns are about CGT or SDLT even though you refer to IHT? Married couples can only have one primary residence. You/wife need to elect which of the two properties you wish to be your primary residence from the date of marriage. Irrespective of which of the two properties you ...

Re: Do unpaid holidays affect non-residency status?

The key issue is not to stay in the UK for 31 days to avoid complications. 30 days is technically ok but the less days you can spend in the UK the better.

Don't forget you also ned to achieve the minimum work hours over the tax year.
