Hi, Sam here , one of the UK tax Experts here on Just Answer, thank you for your question and I shall reply shortly


All assets (including properties) are liable to capital gains when distributed following a MVL - which would need declaring at the year end and any tax due payable the following 31st Jan (as liable then to you as individuals rather than the company - but then you might be due entrepreneurs relief so only liable to 10% capital gain after your annual exemption amount) however note that if there are fewer than 5 shareholders then they are subject to income tax on distributions rather than capital gains - which Im sure the company managing your MVL advised this - Thanks Sam
