The ATED tax year is 1st April to 31st March and companies must file a return by 30 April for each ATED year during which they held residential property in the United Kingdom.
"If you feel reliefs are available (commonly Property Rental Business Relief), then an ATED relief return must be submitted!"
The company is liable to pay an annual chargeable amount based on the value of the property should any reliefs not apply. This will be based on the value of the property at it's most recent valuation date.
The annual chargeable amounts usually increase in line with the previous September's consumer price index (CPI). However, in 2015, the government decided to increase the annual chargeable amounts by an additional 50%.
As these property value bands are not index-linked, more and more properties will come within the scope of the ATED and will be liable to more substantial annual charges as time goes on.
"Non-resident CGT (NRCGT) also changes!"
Currently, NRCGT only applies to tax gains realised by non-residents on the disposal of UK residential property (aligned with ATED which only applies to UK residential property interests). It was announced in 2017's Autumn Budget that from April 2019 NRCGT will be extended to also tax:
Gains arising from disposals of UK commercial properties
Disposals of interests in 'property-rich' entities where the non-resident person holds (or has held) a 25% or greater interest in the company. Property-rich entities include companies that derive 75% or more of its gross asset value from UK property (both residential or commercial).
Rebasing is available for the April 2019 value where the taxable property is only brought into charge for capital gains tax as a result of these new rules.
