    I’m looking to transfer a flat on a 125 year lease to a 100% subsidiary company at market value.

    I was wondering if I need to pay corporation tax and stamp duty, and if prior clearance from HMRC is required?

    If the transfer is going through at the correct market value why would HMRC need to clear this? As for corporation tax/stamp duty I would take legal advice on this as you could argue underlying ownership is not changing so why should you pay?

    Tax affairs such as these are best addressed using professional advice - I would certainly speak with an accountant.

    Could you not "sign-over" the property to your company but retain ownership? Similar to a director's loan?
