Calculating CGT on Sale of Jointly Owned Property

Postby ck_uk » Tue Jan 03, 2017 9:28 pm

Hi, just been using the HMRC website to calculate CGT for the sale of a property which was jointly owned by my partner and myself. I was expecting it to cater for joint ownership, and that I would be paying tax on my half of the gain. However there is no provision for this and it assumes that I am the sole owner and therefore liable to tax personally on the whole gain? ... roperties/

For most joint owned property the gain would be equal, so just divide it by two.
With a pinch of salt take what I say, but don't exceed your RDA
