Capital Gains Tax Valuation
1982 is when Capital Gains Tax began. Our experts provide current and back dated valuations at differing points in time to support your CGT calculations.
What's the purpose of a capital gains tax valuation?
Since 1982 any gain you make from a property investment is subject to capital gains tax.
A property valuation is needed to provide reliable information on the worth of the property and is especially useful where an individual or entity is charged much higher or lower taxes than they should be liable for.
Our surveyors are experienced in providing a robust report for you to submit to your accountant or HMRC. We can also negotiate for you if the District Valuer disputes your valuation.
It is important to consider the condition and status of the property at that date. If you have already sold the property we can undertake this exercise on a drive-by or desktop basis.
What is capital gains tax?
Capital gains tax (cgt) is payable when you sell an asset that has increased in value since you bought it. The rate varies based on a number of factors, such as your income and size of gain. For residential property it may be 18% or 28% of the gain (not the total sale price).
Who is the district valuer?
District valuer services (dvs) is the specialist property arm of the valuation office agency (voa).
They provide independent, impartial, valuation and professional property advice across the entire public sector, and where public money or public functions are involved.
