Re: Income tax allowance and CGT

.....except not all of the £73,400 gain is liable at 18%.
the element that takes her above basic rate threshold (32k for 16/17) is liable to the top rate of 28%.

so based on no other income £41,400 @ 28% = £11,592
£32,000 @18% = £5,760

Thanks for that bd6759.

Owen V Elliot (1990) completely slipped my mind ;)

A FHL is going to be residential as would a guest house for short term letting purposes.

Re: Acquisition at probate & property developer trading

Yep thanks for that. One final point. If he decides to just obtain planning permission and sell the plot as it stands (house & large garden). Say he doesn't live there then a gain will arise based on sale proceeds less probate value (with an element of hope value attached) My query is whether HMRC w...

Re: Acquisition at probate & property developer trading

It appears its based at m.v at time he becomes a property developer under the Sharkey V Wherner principal.
A gain is crystalised at that point is my understanding & the plot would be appropriated to trading stock at that time.
