Can I Get My 10 Million Back Tax Free?


I have 100 properties in my sole name, worth about 10m with 2.4m debt. If I transferred it all into a company, can I assume that even if I pay 18% Capital Gains Tax on the transfer, I can receive all of my 10m, tax free, out of the company after paying only 20% tax on rentals i.e. 600k rental income, 120k tax, leaving 480k in the company to draw tax free year on year until I get my 10m back?

Arthur Weller Replies:
In principle what you have written is correct, but there are three points that I need to bring to your attention: a) The company will have to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax on the present market value of the property portfolio (FA 2003, s 53) when the properties are transferred into it. b) If the company makes a profit of £600K from its rental income then it will pay 21% Corporation Tax (CT) on the first £300K of profit, and 29.75% marginal rate Corporation Tax on the remaining £300K of profit (at present CT rates) (assuming the company has no associated companies, and a full twelve month accounting period).

This means an annual CT bill for the company of £152.25K (not £120K). c) Speak to a tax adviser about the possibility of applying incorporation relief to the transfer of your 'property business'' into the company to mitigate the present liability to capital gains tax.
