  • Base price of gifted property for calculating CGT

    Dear HMRC, my wife and I are now living in UK as UK tax residents. Prior to moving to UK, i gave the self-owned foreign property to my wife as gift. As my wife is going to sell the foreign property, please advise if the base price of the property for calculation of CGT purpose should be based on (A) market price when my wife received the property from me, or (B) the original purchase price paid by me to the third party. Thanks for your advice.
