Is Entrepreneurs Relief available on a Buy -to-let property

Is Entrepreneurs Relief available on a Buy -to-let property sold in 2015/16?

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..

In order to qualify for Entrepreneurs' Relief you should be disposing of any of the following

- all or part of your business

- shares in a company

- assets you lent to your business

A buy-to let property does not fall in any of the above and therefore you would not qualify for Entrepreneurs' Relief on gain made for CGT purposes, I'm afraid.

More information on Entrepreneurs' Relief can be found here

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
