Valuing property for ATED

The Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED) is a tax payable by certain Non-Natural Persons (NNPs) that own interests in dwellings valued at more than £500,000. These provisions affect certain companies, partnerships with company members and managers of collective investment schemes described in the legislation as NNPs.

To value a property, you can use a professional valuer or determine your own valuation. The valuation of the property must be in pounds sterling. Valuations must be on an open-market willing buyer, willing seller basis and be a specific amount.

The valuation date depends on when you owned the property.

The valuation dates are:

  • an initial valuation date,
  • a revaluation date.

There are fixed revaluation dates for all properties, every 5 years after 1 April 2012, for example on 1 April 2017, 1 April 2022 and so on, regardless of when the property was acquired.

The value of the property for any chargeable period is therefore the later of:

  • its initial valuation date,
  • the revaluation date.

There is no ATED or ATED-related Capital Gains Tax payable if an individual owns a property directly, rather than through a company. There are also reliefs if a property is used for commercial purposes.
