The Proposed Capital Gains Tax Changes And They Could Affect You
In this week's show Simon talks about the Chancellor's proposed changes to Capital Gains tax, which are being considered in order to help alleviate the strain put upon the economy by the COVID financial measures, and the impact that these changes could have upon you as a property investor.
Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is the tax you pay when you have a property that isn't your own residence, and which is sold for a profit. This increase in value is taxable.
You will have a Personal Capital Gains Tax Allowance each year, which is currently £12,300. If you have a partner, then you both get this allowance.
Sometimes it can be far more financially viable to hang on to a property rather that sell it and pay CGT from the small remainder.
The government are quite happy for you not to dispose of the asset during your life, as when you die, the Inheritance Tax your family will pay is far higher (40%). This is why it can actually be far more beneficial to never pay off your mortgage.
'Taxes do change, and it's important for you to keep up to date'
'If you never sell a property, you never have to pay Capital Gains Tax'
'Do you really want to pay off your mortgage?'
'It's so important to get your head around the way tax works, as it may influence the way you invest'
