Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
I suggest that your wife finds an accountant with a better grasp of UK Capital Gains Tax (CGT) rules than is currently being displayed.
As far as you are concerned, you are correct in the April 2015 base for calculating the gain. Your wife will be taxed on the full gain, but as it was a joint holding it will be half each.
That happens automatically.
I would be pleased to talk, but from long experience I think you will find it easier to ring me. I am on 01750 725420.
Delighted to have been of assistance.
Thank you for your support.
