Customer Question

I sold my property and made a profit of 150000. I sold it on April 11th 2016.
firstly when do I need to declare this in my tax return and secondly it is now savvings accounts, if I bought a property with the profit would that decrease my capital gains tax owed?
thank you

Thank you for your question...As the property was sold on 11 Apr 2015 and not Apr 2016 I presume, you would report the gain in your tax return for year ending 5 Apr 2016.CGT is based on realised gain after releifs and allowances.The fact you may wish to reinvest the proceeds/gain in another property of dispose of it in another way e.g. gift it etc, it would not reduce your CGT payable, I'm afraid. I hope this is helpful and answers your question.If you have any other questions, please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.
