# My wife and I own a rural Dwelling with garden and paddock,total

### Resolved Question:

My wife and I own a rural Dwelling with garden and paddock,total 6 acres,the run down property cost £24K in 1978, I lived in the property for 3 years,then knocked down the old dwelling and did a self build bungalow.I now wish to sell one acre,the agreement is that the buyer obtains planning permission and I then sell the plot for £265K. My calculations indicate that We can obtain a final sum of £200K after CGT,I want to check if my calculations are approximately correct,as I am not certain about the allowances on the 18 % tax band,
So selling sum £265K, tax relief 2 x £11,100 leaving £242,800 taxable. My wife income is £16000 and mine is £26000 this includes some investment income,The upper tax band is £42386 so can my wife and I BOTH claim to pay the lower tax band rate of %18 on the difference between our incomes and the £42386 limit ?? If so I estimate the tax payable as follows, £265000 - £22200 relief =£242,800 tax liable. Total sum to be taxed at 18% is £42772 ( £42386 minus£16000 plus £42386 minus £26000) so tax at 18% is £7698,this leaves £200000 to be taxed at 28% so tax is £56000, total tax to pay is £56000 plus £7698 which totals £63,698 leaving us an approximate sum of £201K .I am not looking for exact figures Really I want confirmation that my method of calculation is correct,I am possibly aware that there may be some extra tax on the investment income in the year I pay the CGT,Also are their any other tax relief I may get on the sale of the land.?
