Wit step taper relief at 10% it was worth closing down your overseas trust and paying the tax - at 18% the obverseas trust is better so there will be less yeild from that source.
On selling your rent-a-home there will be less tax and maybe a bigger yield because it has now become worth selling but also worth buying .... if you see what I mean.
I frankly think that any tax rate higher 10% is plain wrong.
I also beleive that governments cannot manage the country - just look at the NHS, still in a terrible state after a huge investment ....... I am starting to rant .... so I shall shut up [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
