PROPERTY SETTLEMENT

 

What happens if we will incur Stamp Duty, Capital Gains Tax or a Taxation liability when we do our Property Settlement

 

It is possible for a future financial expense such as Stamp Duty, Capital Gains Tax or a Taxation liability to be taken into account as part of the property settlement division and an adjustment made, so that one party is not unfairly penalised financially.

Properties are often sold as part of a property settlement but it is also common that one spouse will buy out the other person’s interest. These transactions can have financial implications that may affect one party only rather than both parties jointly if an adjustment is not made to counter balance the financial liability one party may be left with.

If the parties:

  • enter into Consent Orders;or
  • enter into a Binding Financial Agreement;
  • or the Court makes an Order for the division of property;

then stamp duty on the transfer of the interest in the property of one spouse to the other, is able to be avoided. 

Couples are able to avail themselves of Capital Gains Tax rollover relief, however specialist advice will need to be obtained to ensure this is able to occur. 

Any Stamp Duty or Capital Gains Tax obligation, as well as the Taxation implications of property settlement can be considered as part of the property division and adjustments made to take into account any liability one party will incur in the future.
