My husband and I purchased a property I. 2001 for £55,000 and sold it sept 2014 for 112,500. Obviously there are selling costs and a little capital costs over the years. First capital gain ever for both of us. Will the house be indexed linked over the 13 years or will we have to pay cut on sale price less personal allowances
Thank you for your question.
Unfortunately there is no indexation on the sale of a heritable property. You will pay tax based on the value at purchase deducted from the value at sale less costs and personal allowances.
I hope this helps.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
