Often property owners may have rented out their home after living in it as a primary residence, converting it to an investment property, or vice versa. If a valuation was not undertaken at the time it became, or ceased being used as an investment property, a retrospective valuation can be undertaken to determine market value of the property at this time.
The team at Acumentis undertake both retrospective valuations, to determine the property value when it was acquired or converted to an investment, and current valuations, to determine the value of a property in the current market.
In the case of an investment or commercial property, holiday home, or vacant plot of land, generally, the price at which you sell the property will be used to calculate capital increase or decrease and any tax payable.
In some instances, including if the property is given away or passed onto a family member, you will need to use the market value of the property instead of the sale price. This is when a property valuation would be required.
A valuation is the most accurate way of providing information on the value of a property asset. This can ensure the individual or entity selling the property is not charged at a higher tax rate than for what they are liable.
Your home (principal place of residence), is usually exempt from CGT unless it has been used to run a business, earn rent or it is more than two hectares of land.
