Changes in the UK and international tax landscape have meant that the UK is no longer seen as a clear choice to purchase real estate.
Arguably one of the most important and generous reliefs from UK capital gains tax (CGT) is the exemption available for the disposal of an individual’s home. In straight forward cases where someone owns one property which they have always lived in for the whole period of their ownership any gain arising is completely exempt from a CGT charge. However modern life is never that simple.
