    If you post the actual question you'll likely get a better response.

    Sorry for the poor layout - but without the option of copy/pasting something like this this is the best i can do.

    sorry the titles have been bunched together
    they should read:
    taxpayer, sold to, proceeds, market value, cost, other taxable income.

    Hi, I'm sorry I've only just seen your post.

    1) David has sold to his wife on a no loss no gain basis. Therefore answer is £0

    2) Marie has sold to her Father, they are connected, so use market value. Thus -
    [20000 - (cost) 8300] - (AEA) 11100 = 600. Marie is a HR taxpayer, therefore the gain is taxed at 20%, giving £120.

    3) Now, Lou and her neighbour are unconnected, therefore use actual proceeds.
    [42000 - (cost) 20650] - (AEA) 11100 = 10250. Now, Lou has £4000 left in her basic band so £4000 x 10% and [£10250 - £4000] x 20% gives a total of £1650.

    I hope that is of some use to you.
