Capital Gains Tax

What Is Capital Gains Tax?

As a general rule, CGT (Capital Gains Tax) is payable on the profit portion of the sale of a capital asset. The current CGT rate is chargeable at 18%. In fact, all forms of property are deemed to be chargeable assets unless specifically exempt. Some exemptions are well known such as the primary residence of an individuals and private motor cars.

Capital Gains Tax can become very complex depending on individual circumstances and, furthermore, depending on the asset being sold.  The good news is that there are many possibilities to reduce, mitigate or defer your CGT. However planning and timing are absolutely crucial.
