  • PPR relief: Keeping clear of the rocks!

    The capital gains tax (CGT) principal private residence (PPR) relief exemption is a very valuable tax relief. But if your situation is in any way out of the ordinary, you can end up losing the benefit.

    Alan Pink highlights possible dangers of losing a valuable capital gains tax relief, and how to avoid them.

  • The ‘abolition of lettings relief’: Time to act?'

    For any landlords who rent out properties in which they previously lived, the November 2018 Budget will, most likely, have inspired some concern as to whether they should consider disposing of their property sooner rather than later. 

    Iain Rankin discusses how the forthcoming changes to capital gains tax lettings relief and principal private residence relief could affect those selling their properties after 5 April 2020.

  • Letting a room in your own home: Don’t forget about CGT!

    The rent-a-room scheme was introduced in a bid to increase the supply of cheaper private rented accommodation by providing income tax breaks for those who let out a furnished room in their own home. 

    Sarah Bradford explores the income tax and capital gains tax implications of letting out a room in an owner’s own home.

  • PPR relief: When ten weeks was enough

    An individual might occupy a dwelling for only a short period before selling it. They will normally hope to be entitled to principal private residence (PPR) relief for capital gains tax purposes in respect of a gain on disposal. 

    Mark McLaughlin highlights a case where evidence of an intention to occupy a property as a main residence was helpful to the taxpayer.
