Valuation Valuation


Valuation for Tax

Disposing of property can give rise to a tax liability in certain circumstances.

To ensure your liability is minimised, our team of valuation specialists will help you understand how the complexities of taxation under statute relate to your property.

When selling a property, a number of scenarios can result in a tax obligation.
The most common are:

Capital Gains Tax

When a sold property has been held by one owner since before 31 March 1982, there is no simple method by which to calculate the capital gain from purchase to sale price. This means that a valuation at the property’s 1982 value is required as a base measure to assess the capital gain.


When an individual passes away, large estates can become liable to Inheritance Tax. As such, a valuation on fixed assets including property will be required to calculate tax liability. We will conduct an efficient and discreet valuation, providing the estate with reassurance.

What we offer

Our decades of experience cover almost all property types and uses – for portfolios, individual buildings and development sites. We have undertaken tax valuations for a number of flagship properties belonging to household names at their 1982 value, carrying out extensive specialised research for the necessary planning information, comparable evidence and market commentary. This means we can provide clients with a strong and well-evidenced valuation that can be used in discussions with HMRC to assess tax liability. Where necessary we will also enter into negotiations with the District Valuer to agree figures.

Fitting in the Fit Out

Inflationary pressures that dominated the economic environment in 2022 and 2023 are showing signs of easing across the UK economy. The consequential increases in the Bank of England’s base rate up to 5.25% – the highest level since 2008 – are now expected to gradually ease over the medium-term.
