Capital gains tax payment window extended

In a welcome move for residential property owners, the Budget Red Book confirmed that the current 30-day capital gains tax (CGT) payment window will be extended to 60 days

From 27 October 2021 the deadline for residents to report and pay CGT after selling UK residential property will increase from 30 days after the completion date to 60 days.

For non-UK residents disposing of property in the UK, this deadline will also increase from 30 days to 60 days.

This will ensure that taxpayers have sufficient time to report and pay CGT, as recommended by the Office of Tax Simplification.

When mixed-use property is disposed of by UK residents, legislation will also clarify that the 60-day payment window will only apply to the residential element of the property gain.

Contact us today to ensure you are paying the correct amount of tax on your property disposal.
