Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I am here to help you. I am reviewing your question and will respond to you shortly.

Thank you for your question.

I presume this is a pure investment and not a business asset or used by your business (not eligible for entrepreneurs' relief).

If the above applies then CGT rate of 20% would be applicable on the gain made.

More information on entrepreneurs' relief acn be found here

It,s a comercial property owned outside of a limited company and in joint names of myself and wife .
I understand if it was residential then a 28% would be paid on profit , just wanted to distinguish between resdential and commercial .
Thank you
Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 1 month ago.

Thank you for your reply.

As the property is in joint names, your share would be 50% of the gain.

You would both be entitled to gains annual allowance (£11,100 each in the current tax year)

The rest would be taxed at 20% provided you are both higher rate taxpayers. In not the rate is 10%, 20% or a combination of both.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
