What should I do now?
CONTACT US AT FMB URGENTLY WITH DETAILS OF THE FOLLOWING:
DATE OF PURCHASE AND COST OF THE ASSET(S)
DETAILS OF ALL EXPENDITURE IN CONNECTION WITH THE PURCHASE, IMPROVEMENT AND DISPOSAL OF THE ASSET(S) CONCERNED
DATE OF DISPOSAL AND PROCEEDS RECEIVED/TO BE RECEIVED
Other important points to note
A DISPOSAL BY WAY OF CONTRACT OCCURS FOR CGT PURPOSES ON THE SIGNING OF AN UNCONDITIONAL CONTRACT, NOT WHEN THE CLOSING TAKES PLACE OR WHEN THE PROCEEDS ARE RECEIVED.
CAPITAL GAINS TAX BECOMES PAYABLE WHEN A CAPITAL PROFIT IS ACHIEVED. IF A CAPITAL LOSS IS INCURRED (I.E. YOU SELL FOR LESS THAN COST) IT IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT TO LET US HAVE THE DETAILS AS THE LOSS CAN BE OFFSET AGAINST MOST CAPITAL GAINS ACHIEVED IN THE FUTURE.
LATE PAYMENT OF CGT ATTRACTS INTEREST CHARGES
