Feel free to use our free online corporation tax calculator to see how much you will pay HMRC on the profits you make. Understand What ATED Is and Who It Affects ATED is a yearly tax payable by companies that own residential properties in the UK valued over £500,000. This tax must be considered if you own such property through a corporate envelope rather than individually. Failure to pay or late payment incurs a penalty, which can be avoided by filing the required ATED forms by the annual deadline of 1st April. Criteria for ATED Ownership Structure: The property must be owned by a company. With this partnership, at least one of the partners is a company or a “collective investment scheme” such as a unit trust or an open-ended investment vehicle. Residential Property: The tax only applies to dwellings, meaning residential properties. Commercial properties are exempt. Property Value: The residential property must be valued at over £500,000. Valuations need to be updated every five years, as per HMRC guidelines. Location: The property should be located in the UK. Usage: If the property is used for charitable purposes or rented to a third party on a commercial basis and isn’t occupied or available for occupation by anyone connected with the owner, it may be exempt from ATED. Reliefs and Exemptions: There are certain reliefs available that could reduce the ATED charge, including for properties held for development, farming, or trading stock. However, it’s crucial to claim these reliefs by submitting the proper ATED forms. Filing and Payment: An ATED tax return must be filed every year, and any tax due must be paid within 30 days of the return being filed. The annual filing period starts on April 1st and ends on April 30th for the following tax year. Understanding these criteria will equip you with the information you need to better manage your properties and potentially reduce your ATED charge. Failure to meet these criteria and not act accordingly could result in hefty fines and penalties from HMRC.
