  • No Money Down - Capital Gains..?


    Can anyone shed any light on whether there are capital gains tax implications on doing a no money down deal...?

    I wondered whether the difference between the purchase price and the the mortgage value might trigger this...?

    Thanks for your help!

    Captial Gains Tax does not apply on your main residence - in the event of owning a second property, CGT only applies at the point of sale on the profits made.

    Hope that helps.

      If you make money on your deal then capital gains would be payable on any profit above the annual capital gainst amount which is £10,100 for 2010 if the gain is tangible.
