Thank you

Gain: £188,500 (£330,000 - £98,000 - £3,000 - £6,500 - £34,000)

Total period of ownership: 247 months

Period of occupation by you as owner: 136 months

Period of letting: 111 months

Exempt gain: £117,526 (£188,500 / 247 x 154 (136 months + last 18 months of ownership)

Letting period gain: £70,974 (£188,500 / 247 x 93 (111 months - last 18 months of ownership)

Gross Non-Exempt Gain: £70,974

Letting Relief: £40,000 (lesser of £40,000, £117,526 and £70,974)

Net Gain: £30,974

Annual CGT exemption: £12,000

Net Taxable Gain: £18,974

CGT will be charged on the net taxable gain at 18% or 28% or a combination of the two rates depending on the level of your income in 2019/20. If the sum of your income and the net taxable gain is £50,000 or less then you will pay CGT at 18%. If it is more, then you will pay some CGT at 18% and some at 28%.

I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I pay tax on the net taxable gain? If my current annual earnings are £15k I pay the lesser?

That's what my answer says.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.

Thanks. CGT at 18% will be £3,415.32.
