Hi, my 2 brothers and 1 sister own a development site, it was transferred from parents approx 10 years ago. We have planning for 5 houses on it and want to split the site into 4 plots, 1 in each of our names and keep the 5th plot in all 4 names for future sale. No money will change hands in this initial transaction to split the site into plots. Is CGT due now as part of the re designation of the site or only when we sell in the future? Many thanks to advise.

For clarity the site is currently equally owned by myself and 3 siblings.
Thank you for question...As you have already stated that no money will change hands in this initial transaction, there will be no gain/loss as a result.The transaction will be chargeable to CGT when actual sale takes place and the sale results in a capital gain. 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. and other Tax Specialists are ready to help you
