The filing and payment deadline for the 2021/22 Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED) returns is 30th April 2021. Remember, an ATED return must still be submitted even if the ATED charge does not apply.

An ATED return is due where a non-natural person owns an interest in a UK residential dwelling valued at more than £500k. A non-natural person includes a company, a partnership where at least one of the partners is a company or a collective investment scheme (please note that does not apply to a partnership or LLP where the members are all individuals).

The more common reliefs from the ATED charge are for residential properties let to an unconnected third party and or property development companies.  However, there are other reliefs which may apply.

The charge for 2021/22 (that is, the year 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022) is based on the value of the property at 1 April 2017 or the value at the date it is acquired, if later.  The property should be valued every five years for ATED purposes, meaning that the next valuation should be at 1 April 2022.

If an ATED charge is due, the rates for 2021/22 are as follows:

Property Value

Annual Charge

  More than £500,000 up to £1 million


  More than £1 million up to £2 million


  More than £2 million up to £5 million


  More than £5 million up to £10 million


  More than £10 million up to £20 million


  More than £20 million


Where a property is acquired part way through a chargeable period, an ATED return must be filed by the end of the period of 30 days beginning with the date of acquisition or transaction. For new builds, the deadline is 90 days from becoming a dwelling, for Council Tax purposes, or the date that it is first occupied, whichever is earlier.

An ATED return must be delivered to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) by the filing date in order to avoid late filing and late payment penalties.   If the return (even to claim relief) is filed after the statutory deadline, a late filing penalty will automatically be issued.

If you think you could be affected by ATED or would like further information on the reliefs available, please do not hesitate to contact us at DRG Chartered Accountants to talk to our team of tax specialists.

We view DRG as a key supplier and crucially a partner and would highly recommend the firm – in particular to other fast growing businesses."

Outdoor Academy

"I have always worked as an employee so when I decided to set up my own business, I did not know where to start. DRG took the time to explain how working as a sole trader would be more beneficial to me setting up a limited company (which I had always thought was a requirement for running a business). They gave me practical advice on the records I need to keep as well as general guidance on setting up my business and helped me claim a large tax refund after my first year of trading."

They have proved the benefits of a local firm with Big 4 experience in providing sound business and tax advice by being accessible, having in-depth knowledge of my business and able to form good working relationships at different levels with me and my staff. We also enjoy the benefit of their excellent accountancy and payroll services. I couldn’t recommend them more highly."
