Thank you for your question..

As you will be gifting the property to a connected person, the value would be the current market value of the property for CGT purposes.

More information on transfer of assets between connected persons is covered on page CGN 4 here

if they then want to introduce it into a limited company of which they are directors the value would be the karket value when they were given the property - is there a time limit before they can do this ?
Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for your reply.

If they were to introduce it to the company at a later date, they could transfer it at the value of the gift therefore making no further gain/loss to mitigate CGT or they could transfer it at a gain sufficient to cover their respective CG annual allowance.

There is no time limit before they can do it.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
