Capital Gains - Tax Planning

Did you know that Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is payable on all taxable gains at a rate of 10 – 28%. This isn’t just selling an asset. Gifts & other transfers can be caught!
CGT can catch everyone  it is payable by individuals, businesses, companies & trusts.
A double tax?! 

If you have already saved out of taxed income, say to invest and then sell that investment CGT may become due. This can feel like a double tax. Same if you sell an inheritance that was subject to inheritance tax.

There ARE planning opportunities & reliefs:

  • Entrepreneurs relief on gains of up to £10m
  • Long Term Gains Relief
  • Opportunities for married couples/civil partners
  • Residency & domicile
  • Trusts
  • Some investments – VCT’s/ISAs etc
  • Allowable expenses
  • Pensions
  • Use hold over relief to postpone the tax

Early planning may be required. This can be complex so why not come & talk to our experts today.
