Reasons for obtaining property valuations for tax planning purposes include:-

  • Transferring properties into a Limited Company
  • April 2015 valuations for non-residents to establish base values for CGT calculations
  • Establishing revaluation reserves when properties are transferred into an LLP

HMRC can open an ‘aspect enquiry’ into any tax declaration so it is important to have documentation you can ‘hang your hat on’ if HMRC were ever to challenge valuations. Full property inspections can be expensive, time consuming, disruptive and worrying for tenants (who might be concerned that you could be thinking of selling), so we are often asked what the alternatives are.

For the last six months or so we have been suggesting to our tax planning clients that they might wish to try the Hometrack Automated Valuation model. Their feedback has been excellent. If you know the square footage of the property, which can usually be found on mortgage valuations you’ve had in the past, the system is very easy to use and each valuation costs just £19.95. Not only that, but historical valuations can also be produced on the basis of comparable property sales at that time.

The Hometrack AVM model is utilised and trusted by several Government bodies, 17 out of the UK’s top 20 mortgage lenders and is accredited by all four of the major ratings agencies. According to their website, Hometrack valued residential property worth a total of £3,320 billion last year!
