Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hi. My name is Tony. I'm looking at your question now and will post my answer or ask for more information here in a short while.
You already appear to have taken account of CGT and Inheritance Tax.
Stamp Duty would only be payable if money was changing hands or there was a mortgage on the property.
For CGT purposes, your son's cost will be the open market value of the flat when it is gifted to him.
You will need to report the disposal in your tax return.
If there is a change of government after 12 December, the rules around CGT could change with almost immediate effect.
I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
No, no other taxes unless you count council tax. Clearly, if the property is let there will be an income tax liability on the surplus of rental income over deductible expenses.
Hi again.I'm just following up to find out if my answer helped or if you have any further questions. If not, would you mind rating my answer so that I get credited for my work.
