Will any profit on the property sale be taxed at the reduced 10% rate?

Article sections

    My wife and I acquired a cottage in 2002 and let it as furnished holiday lettings from 2005. We ceased advertising the property this year and it is now on the market. Will we get the lower 10% rate of capital gains tax on any profit we make on the property sale?

     

    Yes, as long as the property is sold within three years of the date the holiday lettings business ceased you should both qualify for entrepreneurs’ relief on the gain. This relief gives you the lower 10% rate of CGT after deduction of your annual exemption, for gains of up to £10 million per person.
