More time to pay Capital Gains Tax

The Capital Gains Tax (CGT) reporting and payment date for UK residents that sell a residential property changed with effect from 6 April 2020. This change meant that any CGT due on the sale of a residential property needed to be reported and a payment on account of any CGT due made within 30 days of the completion of the transaction.

In the Autumn Budget, the Chancellor announced that the deadline for making CGT returns and associated payments on account would be changed from 30 days after completion to 60 days with immediate effect (from 27 October 2021).

In practice, this change only applies to the sale of any residential property that does not qualify for Private Residence Relief (PRR). The PRR relief applies to qualifying residential properly used wholly as a main family residence. 

HMRC has listed the following types of property sales that are affected:

  • a property that you have not used as your main home;
  • a holiday home;
  • a property which you let out for people to live in;
  • a property that you’ve inherited and have not used as your main home.

There can be penalties and interest if any CGT due on the sale of a UK property is not paid within the stated 60-day time limit. Relevant disposals that completed before 27 October 2021 remain subject to the 30-day deadline.
