Buying and selling property

Critical times to minimise your tax liability.

Buying property

There are tax considerations when purchasing a property. The dreaded Stamp Duty of course and there are ways that this can potentially be reduced, but there may be VAT involved with commercial purchases and the potential to benefit from capital allowances.

You should also consider the best ownership structure for you.

It is always easier to get this right from the start than to correct later!

Selling property

When selling a property, there may be steps that you can take to minimise your tax liability.

Capital gains tax (CGT) will be payable on the eventual sale of the property. The tax will be charged on the disposal proceeds less the original cost of the property, certain legal costs and any capital improvements made to the property. This gain may be further reduced by any annual exemption available and is then taxed.
