Indexation: disposals 30/11/93+: rolled-up indexation to create loss
- January 1981 A buys land for £80,000 (31 March 1982 market value = £90,000)
- January 1992 A transfers the land at no gain/no loss to spouse
- January 1994 spouse sells the land for £120,000 Allowable costs of disposal were £4,000
COMPUTATION ON A
|Disposal proceeds (see note 1)||153,630|
|LESS||Value at 31 March 1982||90,000|
|LESS||Indexation 90,000 x 0.707||63,630|
COMPUTATION ON SPOUSE
WITHOUT THE AMENDMENTS TO TCGA92/S55, the computation on the spouse would have proceeded as follows:-
|LESS||Cost (see note 2)||90,000|
|Costs of disposal||4,000||94,000|
|LESS||Indexation (see note 3)||26,000|
|CHARGEABLE GAIN/ALLOWABLE LOSS||NIL|
Note 1: On the no gain/no loss transfer, the asset is disposed of and acquired for such an amount as gives the transferor no gain/no loss, TCGA92/S56 (2).
Note 2: TCGA92/S55 (6)(b) removes indexation added to the transferee’s RAE on the no gain/no loss transfer.
Note 3: TCGA92/S55 (6)(a) requires indexation to be recomputed on the basis that the asset was held on 31 March 1982. This would be 90,000 x 0.779 = £70,110 but is subject to the general rule that for disposals on or after 30 November 1993 indexation does not create or increase a loss.
However, in these circumstances THE AMENDMENTS TO TCGA92/S55 WILL APPLY. These require you to identify the amount of rolled-up indexation which would have been included in the transferee’s RAE under TCGA92/S56 (2) as a result of the no gain/no loss transfer in January 1992, were it not for the operation of TCGA92/S55 (6)(b). This amount would be 90,000 x 0.707 = £63,630. To arrive at the chargeable gain or allowable loss on the disposal in January 1994, this amount is deducted from the unindexed gain of £26,000, computed earlier, as follows:-
