    Jewels - is it for an individual or a Ltd Co? Is it one of those matching exercises where you have to do a sum every time they do a share transaction?

    Lyn, please give some context, is this employee expenses?

    I got the same as you for the Shares and the Necklace but not for Holly Cottage. I had the gain for the whole period of £106,000 but he used it as his PPR for 5years and 7 months so I calculated an exempt gain and deleted it from the Total Gains on the Cottage.

    The answer I posted was the actual one from Osbornes, so you've gone a little wrong I'm afraid! The answer to Holly Cottage is:

    Task 2.1 Calculation of chargeable gains
    £
    Gain
    Holly Cottage
    Sale proceeds 156,000
    Cost (40,000)
    Cost of extension (10,000)
    106,000

    Hope this makes sense to you now!

    I have not seen the question but passed this in December 2008.

    When calculating the Assessable gain from the property make sure you dont forget to deduct your indexation allowance (Allowance for change in inflation since the purchase of the Asset):
    Proceeds - 156,000
    Less Cost - (40,000)
    Capex (eg Extension)- (10,000)
    Indexation Allowance: (xx,xxx)
    ______

    Assessable Gain xx,xxx

    x 18% xx,xxx - CGT

    There doesnt seem to be any in this question according to the answer Mendy posted but a couple of people i know left this out in the exam.

    I dont understand this then. I know you said this is the answer from Osbournes but do you know why there isnt a reduction due to him living in it? As I thought that this was the case if it was classed as your PPR.

    Hi Jewels,

    Did you find out about the answer for Holly Cottage? I was doing a search on these forums and this thread came up. I have the same answer as you and worked out that he lived in the cottage for 5 years 7 months and worked out the exempt and chargeable gain from there.

    I just wondered if you found out anything more?
