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.
