New system for reporting Capital Gains Tax on property disposal started 6 April 2020

A new Capital Gains Tax reporting and payment on account system was introduced for residential property disposals by UK resident taxpayers from 6 April 2020.  The new system as originally announced required the disposal to be reported and any Capital Gains Tax on the disposal to be paid on account within 30 days of completion. HMRC have now announced that for disposals between 6 April and 30 June there will be no penalty provided that the return is made by 31 July 2020 although HMRC will still charge interest!

We can of course assist you with this new reporting obligation, but you will need to be registered with the Government Gateway and authorize us to act on your behalf.
