Does your limited company own a UK residential property valued at more than £500,000?
Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED), is an annual return and tax that is due to be submitted and paid to HMRC if your limited company owns a UK residential property valued at more than £500,000.
Criteria for ATED return:
- Property is a dwelling (All or part can be used as a residence).
- Is in the UK.
- Valued at more than £500,000.
- Owned completely or partly by a company, partnership, or collective investment scheme.
Returns must be submitted on or within 30 days after 1st April 2023.
You must revalue your property every 5 years in line with ATED legislation, and so if you acquired a property on or before 1st April 2022 you will use the valuation at this date. If you acquired a property after the 1st April 2022, you would use the date you acquired the property as the valuation date.
For the period 1st April 2023 – 31st March 2024 the following charges apply:
|Property Value||Annual Charge|
|£500,000 – £1 million||£4,150|
|£1million – £2 million||£8,450|

|£5million – £10 million||£67,050|
|£10million – £20 million||£134,550|
|£20 million plus||£269,450|

- You are a charitable company using the dwelling for charitable purposes.
- You are a public body listed in section 43 of the ATED technical guidance.
- You are a body established for national purposes listed in section 44 of the ATED technical guidance.
Reliefs may apply if:
- The dwelling is let out to a third part on a commercial basis, and is not at any time, occupied or available for occupation by anyone connected with the owner.
- The dwelling is open to the public for at least 28 days a year.
