Announced in the Autumn Budget 2021, the deadline for UK residents to report and pay capital gains tax (CGT) on the sale of UK residential property increases from 30 days to 60 days after completion.
The change comes into immediate effect and applies to completions made on or after 27 October 2021.
Budget documents confirm that when mixed-use property is disposed of, the 60-day payment window will apply only to the residential element of the property gain.
For non-UK residents disposing of any type of property in the UK, whether directly or indirectly owned, the deadline also increases from 30 days to 60 days.
ICAEW welcomes the changes, which follow recommendations by the Office for Tax Simplification and which were requested in its representations sent to the Financial Secretary to the Treasury ahead of the Budget (see ICAEW REP 95/21).
