Entrepreneurs’ relief is available if you dispose of a trading asset. It is still available for furnished holiday lettings although this is under review. It could also apply if you sell a commercial property which was used in your trade or by your personal company within the three years prior to disposal.
If you are entitled to Entrepreneurs relief, then the tax rate reduces from 18%/20%/28% to 10% of gains up to a lifetime limit of £10 million. As this relief is not available to most landlords, no further details are given here and advice should be sought.
