  • What are the key considerations when selling a commercial property?

    Key considerations include setting a competitive yet profitable price, understanding current market conditions, and ensuring the property's appeal to potential buyers. It's important to have all relevant documents in order, such as title deeds and compliance certificates. Legal and tax implications, including capital gains tax, should be considered. Preparing the property for sale, possibly through renovations or improvements, can enhance its value. An effective marketing strategy is essential to reach the right buyers and negotiate favourable terms. The team at McCarthy + Co can provide guidance in all these areas, alongside our fully comprehensive conveyancing services.

  • What is the rate of capital gains tax on commercial property sales?

    The capital gains tax on commercial property sales is 33%. This tax is charged on the profit made on the disposal of an asset, such as land or buildings. The chargeable gain is calculated by taking the sale proceeds of disposal and deducting the purchase price of the property and enhancement expenditure, among other allowable expenses. There are several reliefs and exemptions from CGT that may be available depending on the relevant circumstances. Our legal team will be happy to discuss this with you in your initial consultation.
