Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED) is payable mainly by businesses that own UK residential property valued at more than £500,000.
HMRC has sent letters asking businesses to check whether the valuations they have used to determine ATED liabilities since 2018 are correct.
According to the tax authority’s records, the bands used by the taxpayer in the returns for the ATED chargeable periods 2018/19 to 2022/23 may be incorrect. Recipients of the letters may need to tell HMRC about additional tax that is due by making a disclosure.
Valuation dates are every five years, starting on 1 April 2012, and now 1 April 2023 to 31 March 2024 is a revaluation year.
Revaluations take effect for the first ATED chargeable period beginning after the valuation date.
For example, liabilities for the ATED chargeable period 2018/19 and the following four periods are based on the 1 April 2017 valuation.
Returns must be submitted on or after 1 April in any chargeable period (which runs from 1 April to the following 31 March) and be filed by 30 April in the relevant period.
There are reliefs and exemptions from the tax, which may mean you do not have to pay.
