Capital Gains Tax Valuation

Capital Gains is a tax that becomes payable when you sell the chargeable asset and make a profit from it. The chargeable asset can be the property or land that’s not your main residence. Capital gains tax will be determined based on your personal income and the profit you make from the sale of an asset.

You pay capital gains on any property you sell with exception to the main residence. The property can be:

  • Investment property
  • Second home
  • Land
  • Business premises
  • Inherited properties

Your capital gains tax is calculated from the gain you make minus expenses which you incurred to sell the property. For instance, if you bought the property for £200,000 and sold for £400,000 your initial taxable gain would be £200,000.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

Sandy du Soleil

I contacted Erikas Grig at short notice after I received a valuation from another chartered surveyor which I believed to be wrong. Erikas was able to visit my home 2 working days after I first contacted his office. He was friendly, respectful and understanding of my concerns with the previous valuation. He sent his valuation to me after 3 working days and I was very pleased with the value and the comparison properties he had looked at. In the process of remortgaging and staircasing, 3 months elapsed and the valuation was close to expiring. Erikas extended it by a month for free! Overall a super experience and I will be definitely using Erikas again!
