What is the capital gains position when a property was classed

This answer was rated:

What is the capital gains position when a property was classed as commercial and occupied by a limited company owned by the owner of the building
The property was then converted in to a residential home and will be occupied by the owner and will be his main residence
Is there any cgt after the conversion
Hi No - the capital gain will only arise after the sale in the future which then takes into account the conversion costs and use of premises for its life span So there would be a considered gain from the time of purchase to the conversion date (or the date it becomes the main residence) Thanks Sam
