UK Tax Questions? Ask a UK Tax Advisor for answers ASAP
Thanks for your question - I am Sam and I am one of the Uk taxe xperts here on Just Answer.
Do you have contractual evidence drawn up at an earlier date detailing the contract to follow? If now, then I am afraid you have no cope to argue an earlier transfer date for capital gain (CT purposes)
Let me know if I can be of further assistance
Thanks for for your response
Intention in itself isi not enough and furtehr more the fact you have documents that see 1st may as being the key tax point - actually details that date as the ONLY date HMRC will only consider.
I am afraid you have inadvertently created a tax point that cannot be changed to anything earlier.
