Capital Gains Tax4 Replies
Anyone else having issues with capital gains tax on their property? We are having considerable trouble with CGT calculations on a house we had built 16 years ago and are now selling.We had carefully prepared a list of all expenses in the build, and made a full list. Some we expected to be thrown out such as garden but others like ground preparation and pool construction we did not!!The calculations have been farmed out by the notaire to a company called ACCREDITECO, because, we are told, Brexit!!The calculation company has thrown out our claims for the pool construction and many others (kitchen, paint, flooring, fixed fittings such as shower etc. ) because the bills do not have our French address on them (we were of course living in the UK during construction and not on the building site). This is despite the house construction bills only having our UK address on them.They haven't allowed the septic tank costs, or the ground works costs, survey marking boundaries, terrace construction/materials. The process is a complete shambles. No rules are forthcoming and this is now holding up the completion/money transfer.Are there other companies who do this calculation in France, or is there just one company doing these calculations?
