Practical Property Investment – Chanda

Welcome to Practical Property Investment - Chanda.

To get the best out of property investment you need to know how the venture will be taxed throughout its life cycle. This title helps with those decisions as it sets out the tax issues to be considered at each stage of investment: acquisition of properties, running the portfolio, and disposal or re-structuring of the investment vehicles.

It also highlights the tax traps in property investment, which tend to be VAT and ATED. Either of those taxes can apply in the most surprising situations, and the penalties for not submitting a return on time, or not paying the tax when due, are significant. As ever with tax law, ignorance of a liability is not a reasonable excuse for non-payment.
