Jo ***** ***** - Capital Gains Tax, I got a property on

Customer Question

Jo ***** ***** - Capital Gains Tax
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I got a property on right to buy, I am trying to work out what Capital Gains tax I am liable for. I received a large discount when I purchased the property and lived there for many years before moving out and renting it out. Do I use the actual price paid or due to the discount use the market value when I purchased it???

You use the actual price paid for the property when you bought it when calculating your capital gain. There is information on the main residence and CGT here.

I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
