The following Corporation Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
The annual tax on enveloped dwellings (ATED) regime was introduced by FA 2013, Part 3 and was one element of a series of anti-avoidance measures that were designed to make it less attractive to hold high-value UK residential property through a corporate structure (or ‘envelope’).

the taxable value of the SDI is more than £500,000
‘Chargeable interest’ for these purposes is defined very broadly and includes
