Private Residence Relief from Capital Gains Tax is a relief which contains traps for the unwary but also opportunities for the well-informed.

CGT and the Private Residence was last published in December 2006 and much has happened in this perennially important and tricky area.

The rules and HMRC practice in this area are highly complex however with careful planning they can be combined with other exemptions and reliefs to mitigate or completely avoid capital gains tax liabilities arising. Updated to reflect recent case law and the FA2011, the book will be a complete resource on the subject and will provide answers to many problematic issues. The book also deals with issues such as second homes; properties abroad and letting to residential tenants.

The book is aimed at anyone who advises clients on residential property transactions including accountants, solicitors, land and estate agents, banks and building societies and insurance company executives.
