When Capital Gains Tax Valuation Is Needed?

In specific scenarios, computing capital gains tax requires assessing the property sale price against the purchase price. However, when these figures are unavailable, a capital gains tax valuation becomes necessary to establish accurate market property values at relevant times. For example:

  • A valuation is necessary on the day the property was gifted.
  • To sell an inherited property, a valuation is necessary at the deceased’s date of passing.
  • Property bought before 31st March 1982 and sold later demands a retrospective capital gains tax valuation.
  • Properties sold by non-residents after April 5, 2015, may require valuations if purchased before this date.
  • Properties sold under market value.

Can HMRC challenge self-submitted values for property transactions?

When declaring property values for Capital Gains Tax, self-submitted figures might face scrutiny by HMRC. If challenged, HMRC may refer the valuation to District Valuers for review. Their advice influences HMRC’s decisions, potentially resulting in fines for inaccuracies in the stated property values. 

Therefore, engaging Erikas Grig Chartered Surveyors to submit valuations can be cost-effective. Our precise valuations, in line with evidence, minimize the risk of inaccurate property assessments. By ensuring accurate valuations, taxpayers can potentially avoid fines from HMRC for incorrect property values, ultimately saving them money.
