I bought my flat as a but to let about 15 years ago for £60k and intend to sell it fo £220K. There is no mortgage. I intend to buy another flat or house for more than this amount. Last year I had a pension of £6000 and rental income of £9000. What is my Capital gains Tax liability?
Thanking you in advance

Thank you for your question..

Please advise if you have had any rental income this year (since 6 Apr 2016) and if so, what was it.

Once I have the confirmation, I will calculate your CGT liability.

Many thanks

Rental Income is £4200

Lyn, thank you for your reply.

Based on information given your income in the current tax year is unlikely to exceed your personal allowance of £11,000.

Your CGT payable would be £38,492 and my calculations are attached.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
