Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hi. My name is*****'m looking at your question now and will post my answer or ask for more information here in a short while.
Are you saying that the value of the house has not increased since you and your wife bought it?
Leave this with me while I draft my answer.
I'll call in a few minutes.
There can be no CGT if the value of the house at the time you gift it to your daughter is the same as it was when you and your wife bought it. In fact, as any individual can make tax free gains of £12,000 in the current tax year, there would be no CGT to pay if the property was up to £24,000 greater in value than when you bought it assuming you don't use your annual CGT exemption against other capital gains.
The value of the gift will remain in your own and your wife's estates for Inheritance Tax purposes for seven years after its made.
I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
